The Proposed Project

Ducks Unlimited Canada is proposing to undertake routine maintenance repairs and upgrades to existing constructed wetland infrastructure located at the Tintamarre National Wildlife Area.

The scope of this project includes removal of incompatible vegetation along existing constructed dykes located within the NWA. The dykes will be levelled and re-topped with glacial till from a local source. The proposed work will be completed during the winter when frozen ground conditions exist, and disturbance to migratory birds and other wildlife will be minimal. All necessary measures to address potential siltation will be employed, including use of silt fences. All exposed surfaces will be covered with hay mulch at the completion of construction, and will be seeded with native grass species in the spring. The approximate length of dyke to be repaired is 2500 metres.
