Natural Channel Design Plans

Land development may require that portions of a watercourse be relocated, or renaturalized in order to accommodate road widening, property development, improve aquatic habitat conditions, or to meet fish habitat compensation requirements. Azimuth will develop a natural channel design plan based on the fluvial characteristics and aquatic habitat conditions on a local and watershed scale, and provide recommendations for a mitigation strategy to minimize/avoid impacts to fish habitat best management practices for watercourses. Our biologists are also qualified to acquire fisheries approvals from conservation authorities, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR) or Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), and complete fisheries monitoring during, and post construction to document the project and ensure compliance with environmental approvals.
