BIG BAR SLIDE

Body: 

In response to a significant landslide discovered between June 21 and 23, 2019 in a narrow portion of the Fraser River near Big Bar, just north of Lillooet, B.C., a unified command incident management team (PDF) has been established.

Officials learned of the Big Bar Landslide in late June. After examining satellite imagery, data indicates the slide may have occurred in late October or early November.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Government of B.C. are assessing the situation for a number of salmon species that are migrating to their spawning grounds. With support from local First Nations and geotechnical engineers, a plan to address the conditions and risk to these salmon is currently being evaluated for implementation.

Salmon Species at Risk
Based on the magnitude of the partial obstruction, a number of salmon species that are a significant conservation concern need to pass through the area. Species include:

Spring/Summer 5-2 Chinook
Early Stuart Sockeye
Early Summer Sockeye
Summer Run Sockeye
