CHARLES CREEK EROSION mitigation

Erosion Repair + Mitigation

2008 - 2011

Diamond Head was hired to be the environmental monitor for erosion repair and mitigation work on the lower Charles Creek. Stream and riparian characteristics of the creek had been considerably altered by previous instream works, including extensive armouring and grouting of riprap within the channel and on stream banks. Diamond Head prepared an Environmental Overview Assessment and related documentation for submission to the Ministry of Environment and Department of Fisheries and Oceans. In addition, an Emergency Response and Spill Contingency Plan was developed for the project. Site visits were conducted on a regular basis and involved monitoring, restoration and enhancement work activities, evaluating water quality, and producing environmental monitoring reports.
