Comeau Stream

Gravel pit water intake

Water in gravel pit

Comeau 16

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Issue:

Gravel pit near the brook filled with water diverted from the brook. The water from the gravel pit drains onto a dirt road downstream. Aquatic plants are starting to grow in the pit.

Action Required:

Block the stream diversion in order to prevent water from reaching the gravel pit. A cleanup upstream (see Comeau 17) might be useful.

Update

July 30 2015

Update:

Gravel pit is dried-up. No signs of flooding suggesting that maybe problem was rectified. Vegetation is abundant and healthy. Could return in spring for observation.
