Lower Maxan Creek
Both sites located upstream of Bulkley Lake on Maxan Creek .
Site 1 - Streambank Stabilization
The streambank was reshaped from a steep, vertical bank to a gentler 1 - 2 degree slope. The bank was then stabilized with posts to "pin" the bank in place and Willow wattle fencing was wound around the posts to prevent future loss of soil during flooding events. Erosion mats were placed around the posts and live Willow stakes planted behind the posts.
Site 2 - Riparian Planting
Live Willow stakes (shown soaking below) were harvested and planted along the streambank for riparian restoration. A waterjet stinger was used to create the holes for planting.
