Instream Works

Working in or about a stream can have significant ecological impacts on the habitat or species that rely on aquatic or riparian (stream-side) habitats. Therefore, the Ecosystems staff provides advice and guidelines to regulatory agencies, such as the Water Stewardship Division, and proponents of instream works in order to mitigate these impacts. Currently, Ecosystems provide input on prioritized projects requiring approval under Section 9 of the Water Act to the Water Stewardship Division.
