Heart Creek Fish Passage Improvements: Phase 2

Continuing on the success achieved with construction of the Heart Creek clear span bridge in removing the first fish barrier on Heart Creek, this project moves to Phase 2, to remove a second barrier on Applegrove Road. By removing this second barrier, 1.2 kilometres of fish habitat will be opened up in perpetuity. It is anticipated that the design will be completed in 2016, with construction in 2017.

The fish species to benefit from this work will be Kokanee, Rainbow Trout and Bull Trout.
