Stabilized Fording Sites
Since crop and pasture lands often straddle watercourses, providing safe crossings for livestock and equipment with reduced potential for negative water quality effects is critical. Additionally, watering livestock at rivers is often the only practical option for agricultural producers. The KWRC has used stable fording sites as both watering locations for livestock as well as crossings for farm equipment. The approaches are properly aligned and hardened, and the stream bottom is stabilized with hard rock to prevent erosion and rutting. Since 1994 the KWRC has installed 85 stabilized fording sites in the watershed.
Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee
Worth Wading Into
Welcome to our Watershed!
The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee or "KWRC" is a non-profit organization whose mission is to restore the Kennebecasis River Watershed back to a sustainable ecosystem.
We strive to undertake strategic habitat restoration, monitoring efforts, and educational initiatives to promote public awareness and participation in the restoration of the Kennebecasis River Watershed.
The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee wants to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk (Maliseet), Wabanaki and Mi’kma’ki Peoples.
We are currently seeking candidates to fill potential job positions here at the KWRC for the coming field season! Click on the images below to learn more about each position.
The KWRC has been planning, securing funding for, and implementing restoration activities since 1994. Our organization has now completed restoration projects at over 56 sites in the Kennebecasis Watershed. To spotlight our riparian restoration efforts, we have recently updated our Riparian Restoration Portfolio! To read more about each site, check out our portfolio here.
