    Willow Creek fish passage improved

    Work to improve fish passage in Willow Creek is complete, and fish are timing their movement upstream with high tides and fall rain.

    Two rock weirs have been constructed in the creek beneath the Highway 19A bridge to help fish get over a series of pipes that had been exposed when the creek bed eroded. The pipes are owned by the City and Telus, who worked with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), consultants, and local stewardship groups to design the series of weirs that allow the fish to pass over the pipes.
