Erosion has filled the Rosewall Creek stream bed and low water flow in
hot months results in fish deaths. The stream bed will be deepened by
moving gravel to the banks.

Tree trunks are buried into stream banks and cabled in place in Rosewall
Creek as part of a BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
stream bank restoration and protection project. The trunks and other
vegetation will help to control the water flow and provide shelter and
food sources for spawning salmon.
