Upgrading and correcting culverts on forest roads in the Bonaventure River ZEC territory (sectors D and E)

Recipient: Association des pêcheurs sportifs de la Bonaventure
Approved Amount: $20,000
The goal of this project is upgrading and correction of culverts to avoid sedimentation in the Bonaventure River as much as possible to limit their impact on the habitat of Atlantic salmon and brook trout. In July 2017 and September 2019, an inventory and characterization of culverts along the Bonaventure River was carried out in collaboration with the Groupement Forestier Baie-des-Chaleurs and an inventory and characterization project of bridges and culverts with the collaboration of the MFFP.  In this project, the corrective work and / or replacing culverts will be carried out in order to comply with the standards of the MFFP’s “Application guide for the Regulation respecting the sustainable development of forests in the domain of the State”. The planned work in sectors D and E is a logical follow-up to the work undertake to date.  In 2020, the Association des pêcheurs sportifs de la Bonaventure will lead the installation of 7 major culverts as well as several drainage culverts.
