Phase II of the Lower Chéticamp River Project Begins!

Last week the CRSA continued work with Parks Canada on Phase II of the lower Chéticamp River Project. The goal is to improve fish passage in areas that have become too shallow due to overwidening of the channel. Last week's work focused on improving access to the Fence Pool via Salmon Pool Trail in order to bring up large boulders to be used to build deflectors bars which will be put in later this summer.
