The Adurt Brook Restoration Project (2018) continues with improving access and restoration of habit for Atlantic salmon. Bridge upgrades and component replacement over Adurt Brook will allow for safe stream crossing for ATV’s, which will reduce sediment and erosion from adversely impacting critical salmon habitat.
In addition, three abandoned beaver dams upstream from the ATV bridge, which are causing blockages in Adurt Brook, will be removed/notched to allow the brook to return to its natural flow. Beaver dam removal/notching will be completed dependent on the amount of time left in the field season, as well as dependent on site conditions such as water levels.

The Adurt Brook Restoration Project re-established access and restored habitat for Atlantic salmon in the Indian Bay Watershed through the removal of approximately 9 beaver dams. Adurt Brook is a tributary on Indian Bay River which supports a healthy run of Atlantic salmon that will greatly benefit from increased access to habitat upstream.
In addition, this project also addressed streambank erosion through the planting of seedlings in the riparian zone. These combined activities improved salmon habitat and restored connectivity in the watershed.
