Hanlon Creek Weir Removal Project – Complete

It’s done – the barrier to fish passage has been removed.

I’m happy to report that the Hanlon Creek Weir Removal Project was completed today!!¬† The middle portion of the weir has been removed and the stream bed rehabilitated. ¬†Brook Trout are now able to access an additional 3.6 km of coldwater habitat and the stream has been made more resilient to a warming climate.

Warm thanks to all our volunteers and supporters for your generosity and caring!

A great article in the 8 September 2019 edition of the Guelph Today:
