Big Creek Watershed Storage Assessment Project

The Big Creek Watershed Storage Assessment project will determine the feasibility of increasing the storage of water to enhance the availability of water later into the year for the benefit of agricultural operations, wildlife, waterfowl and fish. This project will focus on the water flow within the Big Creek tributaries (Bambrick, Twinflower, Mons, Copper, Tete Angela and Ray Creeks).

The project will also provide an operational template that can be used where mountain pine beetle impacts need to be mitigated in order to sustain rural business (water flows for agriculture, recreation and wildlife values), which is a significant long term driver of the local economy.

In addition to the funding from CCBAC, the Big Creek Watershed Storage Assessment project is supported by: Ducks Unlimited Canada; Cariboo Region of the Ministry of Forests, Land and Natural Resource Operations; Yunesitin Government Office, Williams Lake Timber Supply Association, and Big Creek Livestock Association.

CCBAC Contribution: $30,000
