Abstract

The Squalicum Creek Restoration project seeks to increase the health and vitality of a critical salmon habitat. This can be achieved with the removal of a 350 foot concrete channel currently lining the streambed in this section of the creek. Additionally, the project includes either the complete deconstruction of the BNSF railway crossing the creek, or significant modification of this structure, which currently creates a major obstacle impeding successful native salmon runs.
