Central Estuary Restoration Project
Biophysical monitoring services were provided by LTEC for this important restoration project in the Squamish Valley. Services involved monitoring sediment accretion, water levels, water quality and estuary wetland vegetation from 2018 to 2022. Permanent stations were set up in the estuary and monitored by LTEC to obtain baseline and post-restoration data to inform on changes that occur in the estuary over time and after restoration. Restoration involved reconnecting the river and the central estuary through culvert upgrades and the removal of an artificial berm.
