Annie Creek

Annie Creek

Nile Creek Enhancement Society have been volunteering with the Community Watershed Monitoring Network to record water flow, temperature and turbidity in the creeks from Annie Creek to Thames Creek including the Big Qualicum River. Annie Creek has had continual high turbidity so it was decided to do an assessment of the creek to find the cause.

June 12 2016 NCES volunteers met with Dave Clough (biologist) and Joe McCallum Special Project Assistant from the RDN for a day and a half of assessing Annie Creek. The creek was walked from where it enters the Salish Sea to approximately 2 km from the mouth of the creek. We found two problems: a road culvert causing erosion and a drainage culvert from a private field. RDN is now aware of the problems and will be doing follow up to eliminate both issues. The over all report is even with high turbidity Annie Creek remains an excellent watershed for spawning coho and trout.
