The purpose of this report is to provide a review of the stream habitat structures prescribed for the lower Cluxewe River by LGL Ltd. (LGL, 2005). In particular this review is intended to answer the question of whether the structures prescribed and methodology proposed are appropriate for the system given the historic, and current, channel stability of the lower river. This review is based on the following documents and data: Rehabilitation Designs for Lower Cluxewe River (LGL, 2005); Coastal Watershed Assessment (CWAP) of Cluxewe Watershed (Ostapowich, 1998); Historic channel mapping of Lower Cluxewe River from 1953 to 1995 (Klohn Crippen, 2005); Aerial photo coverage from 1981 and 1996; and, Field reconnaissance on May 15 and 16, 2006. To assist the review, we have adopted the reach breaks of the CWAP (Ostapowich, 1998). All distances are reported as downstream from the West Main Bridge to match those in the LGL report.
