The Work involves excavation and removal from the riverbed of protective berm and partial causeway obstructing nearly one third of the natural channel. The berm and causeway have been constructed years back with the construction of the existing bridge crossing. Some 2, 500 cu m mixture of sand, gravel and rock would be removed from the riverbed. Estimated 20% of this material is located under the Low Water Level. Excavated material would be used for the widening of the adjacent road embankment. The Work would be completed within no more than 3 working days @ 8 hours, or a total of 24 hours. During excavation, temporary siltation of the downstream section of the river will occur. The Work is to be carried out in the fall, at Low Water Level, within a timeframe window specified by the DFO and other Regulators. The area subject to excavation is marked Green on the enclosed drawing.
Given the proximity to town no food, or human waste will be left on site.
