Pinkut Creek Intake

Client: Fisheries and Oceans Canada

Architect: Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd.

Project: The Pinkut Creek Spawning channel is located on the shore of Babine Lake. Water is supplied to the spawning channels through an intake tunnel running from Pinkut Creek.  The purpose of this project was to minimize the bed load deposition at the entrance to the intake tunnel.  This was accomplished through the construction of a weir and the addition of a sluice gate to the existing weir structure.  This required a section of the creek to be drained, form work to be constructed, rock to be excavated, and concrete poured.

      

         

The work was conducted in an efficient and timely manner, and the project was completed on schedule and within budget.  This project was very successful due to the open communication and team approach by all parties involved.  It was also completed in a sensitive manner, minimizing interruptions to the daily operations of the staff.
