Campbell River Spawning Gravel Placement

Site 7‐IV: In the lower Campbell River system, gravel recruitment is an ongoing footprint issue due to the blockage of natural gravel recruitment from the upper river, caused by the construction of the John Hart Generating Facility in 1947. This project is part of an ongoing gravel recruitment program on the Campbell River and will result in the reconstruction of an 1800 square‐metre spawning gravel pad in an historically significant area for Chinook, Coho, Chum and Steelhead populations.
