Abstract: The Tsuk-si-tay side channel portion of the Nitinat River Watershed Restoration Project was initiated in 1998. Caycuse River and Campus Creek are the two main tributaries of the lower Nitinat River, emptying into Nitinat Lake, located on the south west coast of Vancouver Island (Figure 1). During the spring of 1998, an initial field reconnaissance and an overview assessment (FHAP) of Caycuse River and Campus Creek were conducted. The assessment indicated the highest priority for stream restoration would be through creating off-channel habitat in the Caycuse River watershed (Taylor, 1998). During the summer of 1998, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Habitat Restoration Department was involved in selecting a site for development of the side channel. The location was a relic channel, located along the toe of the slope at the edge of the flood plain. Features such as bedrock outcrops near the top of the channel would provide excellent flood protection. The side channel would parallel the lower Caycuse River, where it empties into Nitinat Lake.
