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.

Riparian Restoration Tool Box
Over the years the KWRC has developed tried and true restoration techniques for repairing our degraded riparian zones and improving habitats for terrestrial and aquatic species. Now, we want to share these strategies with you!
Based on our extensive experience in restoration over the years, we are pleased to produce this Riparian Restoration Tool Box, which we think will be valuable for leading interest groups and community organizations through riparian habitat restoration projects. In the past we have often been asked about how we complete our various projects, and it is the aim of this manual to help groups across New Brunswick and beyond with completing similar projects. If you are someone who is interested in restoring or improving a riparian area, this tool box is for you!
Our restoration manual provides detailed information about how to have the most successful restoration project possible. Click the button below to download the manual!
