DREW CREEK REMEDIATION
Under the direction of Lawrie Bowles, work began last summer on remediation of Drew Creek. Most work will be in and around the first 100 metres up from the culvert under Heriot Bay Road. During the dry season a gang went in and cleaned up snagged branch material and shifted some large woody debris.
On January 7, Grand Hayden delivered several big logs, provided by Harper Graham. We rolled them down near the creek. They will be used for more large woody debris. This will provide cover for fry and in some cases for modest stream diversion. Pathway improvement and a bridge are in the planning stage. Stay tuned for further reports as work continues this year.
