Event coming up on Saturday afternoon.

Public conversation about restoring Katzie Slough from a ‘stagnant ditch’

Watershed Watch hosts event in Pitt Meadows on Saturday

The Watershed Watch Salmon Society is hosting a public conversation about the Katzie Slough on Saturday.

Lina Azeez, a spokesperson for the society, said the event is an opportunity for citizens to find out what is being done to restore the historic waterway that winds through Pitt Meadows.

“It was once a healthy, fishable, vibrant habitat. Now it’s a stagnant ditch full of invasive plants,” she said.

There will be presentations by Watershed Watch, the Friends of the Katzie Slough and university students from the BCIT/SFU masters of environmental restoration program.

Key issues are upgrading the pump stations and gates to both allow more water flow through the slough, and allow fish to safely pass through.

The conversation will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday in the Heron Room at City Hall, 12047 Harris Rd.
