The main objectives of undertaking this project on the Quatse River watershed were to: 1) Conduct field surveys to determine existing habitat conditions in the Quatse River and its high priority tributaries, 2) Ascertain the biological and physical perturbation to the existing habitat, 3) Evaluate habitat condition data to identify the need for rehabilitation, 4) Identify rehabilitation opportunities within priority streams and reaches, 5) Develop site-specific rehabilitation designs for high priority sites, 6) Develop alternatives for improving water flows in the Quatse River mainstream through modifications to the existing weir structure and its operation on Quatse Lake, and 7) Identify the approximate costs for the proposed rehabilitation works. The proposed rehabilitation treatments to meet site-level objectives are to construct LWD and boulder complexes and to place oversized boulders in mainstream and tributary sites.
