We are currently preparing the groundwork for a project to enhance the summer water flow in Chalet Creek. This entails the testing of existing wells in the area of Gardner’s Pond, at the head of the creek, with view to pumping water into the pond. Retention of water in the pond will be enhanced by the construction of a berm to maintain the existing high-water level for a longer period in the Spring and Summer and to regulate the flow of water from the pond into the creek. A biophysical survey of the pond is also planned. The objective of the project is to enhance the stream environment for the survival of plant, insect and animal life. This will increase the chances of survival and development of fry released by Deep Cove School children each year and of the health of returning salmon in the Fall and Winter.
