OR Creek

Or Creek is the largest of the Coquitlam River tributaries. Its 9 kilometre length drains 25 square kilometres of steep, mountainous watershed. Logging activities in this watershed in the 1980s destabilized bank conditions and resulted in serious slope failures in a few locations that have caused silting in the Coquitlam River. Stabilization work has partially remedied this problem. DFO and BC Hydro constructed a series of connected ponds on the flat below the mouth of Or Creek in the closed portion of the Coquitlam Watershed, which are used by all salmon species except sockeye.
