Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
FIA Project 2629002

    Fish Passage Improvement (480 Road)
Project lead: West Fraser Mills Ltd.
Author: Zapisocki, Ryan
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
The overall objective is to provide unrestricted fish passage for all life stages of fish for the purpose of spawning, rearing or migration which will support increased fish sustainability, survival and production. The existing pre-code culvert installation was restricting access to identified fish habitat upstream and was replaced with an open bottomed fish passage friendly structure. The open bottomed multi-plate culvert will remove the identified fish passage barrier created by the pre-existing culvert and ensures unrestricted fish passage is provided for all life stages of fish in the reconstructed stream channel. The project is not located within a community watershed.
