Burke Brook EA

When I was at the Don Mouth EA meeting, I bumped into Bill Snodgrass who is the person leading up the Burke Brook Class EA. He filled me in on the details. Apparently the main purpose of the study is a proposal to build a fish ladder just east of Bayview Ave. There is a 2 metre drop where the brook pours out of a culvert which makes it impossible for fish to get past.

They will also study erosion issues along the open portions of the creek which exist all the way over to Glenview Senior Public School where it disappears for good. The headwaters of the creek use to start in the Downsview area north of Wilson Avenue near Wilson Heights. This is well documented on the Lost Rivers website.
