Metepenagiag/Johnston’s Pit LSWM Bank Remediation

Recipient: North Shore MicMac District Council
Approved Amount: $25,000
Year Approved: 2015

This project will serve to prevent further massive loss of bank materials and sediments and in-fill of the Whirl Pool and the channels leading out of the Little Southwest Miramichi River into the estuary. River widening and channelization are processes that may affect fish passage at certain times of the migration season, as well as lead to further warming of the water before it enters the estuary.

The general project description includes installation of rock spurs, widening of

overflow channel and installation of rock toe.
