The Resource Management Plan designated the Copper Creek Watershed (which includes MacIntyre Creek) as a Priority Key and Target Watershed. The Restoration Plan for the Copper River Watershed, by Golder Associates Ltd (Dec 2001), indicates that instream and riparian assessments were needed to determine restoration needs. A hydrologic assessment of MacIntyre Creek was subsequently completed by M.J. Milne & Associates (March, 2003). The assessment recommended that a stream and floodplain restoration prescription be developed for the addition of large woody debris to reached M2 and M3, and their respective flood plain areas.
