In 2007, the City of Chilliwack retained Nova Pacific Environmental (NPE) to conduct fish salvage and monitor its annual ditch maintenance program. In addition, NPE provided pre and post stream assessments for these systems in accordance with terms set out in the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Authorization (Referral File No. 05-HPAC-PA2-000-000211).

The 2007 DFO Authorization was valid from July 30th, 2007 to September 30th, 2007 and included 24 systems. Seventeen of the 24 systems were designated as fishbearing. Three of the Chilliwack drainage systems projected for maintenance in 2007 potentially support populations of the endangered Salish Sucker Catastomus catastomus. As this species is protected under federal jurisdiction (DFO) through the Species at Risk Act, special permits were applied for and acquired prior to conducting salvage and subsequent maintenance work in these areas (Permit Number SECT 07 SCI 029).
