Hobbs Creek Proper Functioning Condition Assessment and Remediation
University of Victoria
In 2002, we were asked to review the proper functioning condition of Hobbs Creek which flows through Mystic Vale. Our evaluation of the creek was that the majority of the system was Non-Functional. The watershed was highly valued by UVic and the community as both wildlife habitat and for its recreational opportunities. Since that time we have worked with UVic to conduct emergency remediation measures to address the most urgent erosion and stream bank degradation issues within the Mystic Vale portion of the watershed. We designed a long-term restoration plan to arrest the erosion and slowly rebuild the stream and restore the ecology of Mystic Vale.
