VOLWS is undertaking a stream restoration project
on an area of Craigflower Creek located near Marler Dr. The Stream
Team has planned and initiated clean-up activities which addressed
the following identified problems: 1). An obstruction of the creek's
flow caused by small woody debris held by two log jams, and; 2).
Sections of eroding bank.
To date, we have removed 1610 kg of debris from the creek allowing
for increased water flow. We have also secured large woody debris
in and alongside the creek for reestablishment of in-stream habitat
and for bank stabilization In the future, we plan to plant eroded
bank areas with native vegetation to stabilize.
