In 1999 and
2000 we completed a major stabilization project valued at $215,009.00
at the Slesse Park Clay Slide with volunteer labour, in-kind donations,
and grants from Fisheries Renewal BC and BC Hydro. This work greatly
reduced the siltation entering the river from this clay slide. We
completed a final "As Built" report for this work which
was published and a copy is available upon request.
In 2001 in partnership
with The Fraser Valley Regional District the engineered design and
working drawings were completed for the Tolmie Clay Slide. This
work valued at $31,730.00 was done with volunteer help, in-kind
contributions and grants from Fisheries Renewal BC and the Fraser
Valley Regional District. The FVRD handled the funds and accounting.
The engineers from Golder Associates predict that unless this slide
is stabilized the undercutting at the slide toe will continue and
erosion could accelerate and the siltation problems could get worse.
A copy of this engineering report is available upon request.
The Tolmie Clay
Slide Stabilization Phase 1 of 2003 established an access road and
contructed four demonstration groynes.
