Hedberg and Associates Consulting Ltd. (HAC) have conducted field assessment for fish passage determination for existing culverts on the Squamish River Forest Service Road (FSR) in Tree Farm Licence 38 (TFL 38). This work was done under Forest Investment Account (FIA), Project Number 6813-001-3, and covered the mainline road adjacent to the Squamish River, from the southern boundary of TFL 38 to the northern end of the Squamish River FSR near the Squamish River and Elaho river confluence. Culverts were inspected based on extensive local and historical knowledge and followed the methodology detailed in the BC Ministry of Environment Field assessment for Fish Passage Determination of Closed Bottomed Structures. Information for each culvert inspected was noted on Closed Bottom Structure (CBS) Field Measurement Form. These field forms are included as Appendix A to this report. All existing culverts were inspected visually, however only those that had existing or potential fish habitat upstream of the culvert were documented. Due to the steep valley sidewalls along much of the FSR, the "typical" cross stream culvert often only has a small catch basin on the upslope, east, side of the road, and therefore these were not considered likely candidates for fish passage improvement.
