IN-STREAM LARGE WOODY DEBRIS HABITAT STRUCTURES
- Forestry & Environmental
Landmark constructed 5 in-stream large woody debris habitat structures within the Coquitlam River. The objective of the project was to restore natural stream function and provide habitat for salmonid species. The habitat structures, designed by an engineer, were a combination of root wads and boulders that were anchored and cabled together and secured to trees and boulders along the shore line.
Landmark’s project highlights include:
- Use of a Spyder Hoe to complete in-stream works
- Safe completion of the project in a high-use public park setting
- Use of techniques that minimized environmental impacts
- Installation of structures that have not moved despite extremely high water events since the construction
