Work continues on the upgrade of the Culvert #4 along the Training Berm. On September 10th and 11th the culvert segments were installed and now the site is being backfilled, compacted, and the road bed is being reestablished.
We appreciate the patience from the public as we wrap up this exciting project. We expect to have the road open again starting October 1st!
Stay tuned for opportunities to volunteer to help us replant the riparian areas.
Great job by Whistler Excavating and amazing work by Gwil Crane in the unloading and placement of each culvert segment! A project of this magnitude has numerous moving pieces and the oversight and design by WSP engineering crew Kevin Henshaw and Justin Murray have been seamless.
Funding support has been provided by Coastal Restoration Fund, Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program, Pacific Salmon Foundation, and, most recently, Canadian Wildlife Federation with funds from the BC Salmon Restoration Innovation Fund! This project is a partnership with Squamish Nation and Fisheries and Oceans Canada!
The Squamish River Watershed Society (SRWS), formed in 1998, takes a holistic approach towards watershed management, examining the headwaters down to the estuary and into Howe Sound. We are committed to enhancing and preserving the integrity of the Squamish Watershed, focusing on key environmental factors and human influences.
