We have some materials available from the first phase of the restoration at Kus-kus-sum.
Currently, most of the remaining concrete is in the form of a 170m-long wall buried just behind the steel-piling wall that separates our site from the Courtenay River. Removing this concrete wall is the next step of our restoration and will be undertaken over the next 2 weeks.
Project Watershed will be a continuing with the work that happened last summer and fall which entails excavating the remaining concrete, separating concrete and rebar, crushing concrete, and removal, repurposing, and recycling material offsite.
