Jimmy Jimmy (Judd) Slough Culvert Replacement

The Jimmy Jimmy (Judd) Slough replacement project consists of the replacement of two existing decommissioned culverts abandoned within the Squamish River Dike with installation of a new flood box designed to control seepage through the dike.  When the dike was first built, two culverts were installed through the dike to maintain flows to the Upper Jimmy Jimmy (Judd) Slough for environmental reasons. In response to flooding in the 1980s, the culverts were closed off and left buried within the dike structure. These abandoned culverts pose a flood threat as they provide a seepage path through the dike. The project proposes to remove the existing culverts within the dike and replace with a 2400mm x 900mm box culvert controlled with automatically operated sluice gates.

The majority of the proposed works would occur on Squamish First Nation Reserve Lands (Wai'wakum Reserve #14).
