BIG BAR SLIDE

Body: 

In June 2019 A rock slide was identified near Big Bar just north of Lillooet, BC. A large slab of rock calved off just upstream of a narrow portion of the Fraser River near Big Bar, creating a 5m waterfall in a section of the river. While landslides are natural events that happen frequently along rivers, given the size of this slide Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Province of BC have immediately deployed experts to assess the conditions and risk to salmonoid migration to their spawning grounds.
