In Puntledge Park, alterations to the intake that feeds the pond has improved fish passage. The pond intake used to be a submerged pipe. While this worked well for juvenile coho in the pond, during periods of low water in late summer, spawning salmon would become trapped and die in the pond. To remedy this, streamkeepers removed the pipe and constructed an open channel with a series of log weirs.Spawners entering the pond can now continue their journey upstream in search of spawning gravel.
