Since 2006, fish habitat data have been routinely collected at 91 sites throughout the Okanogan Basin. The resulting database contains thousands of data points pertaining to various fish habitat features throughout the basin. The fish habitat reporting tool is a Windows-based application that allows users to view real-time fish habitat data, and to display data on a dynamic map. The technology facilitates reporting of status and trends relating to ongoing and planned habitat restoration projects in the Okanogan Basin.
The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) retained Associated Environmental to assist in restoring riparian habitat and monitoring fish compensation habitat at three locations. The work was in accordance with the requirements of three Fisheries Act Authorizations that allowed for significant upgrades to the Adams River Bridge at Squilax, the Trans-Canada Highway at Salmon Arm, and Highway 97A at Armstrong. AE conducted yearly assessments of riparian vegetation and provided workable solutions to help MOTI meet its targets for the sites.
