B.C. Developers Want to Dam Headwaters of Key Steelhead River

October 12, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

A study obtained by the Vancouver Sun indicates that the proposed Garibaldi At Squamish project at Brohm Ridge would wipe out steelhead in one of the top rivers in British Columbia. “The Brohm, one of two main steelhead nurseries for the Squamish River system, enjoys a naturally high level of phosphorus because of the volcanic geology of the area. That chemical supports an ideal food chain for raising fish. Only two other B.C. streams, the Upper Dean River and the Blackwater River, have similar chemistry and both of those rank among the top angling streams on the planet.” Article by Scott Simpson.
