Boyle Excavating clears Bowmanville’s fish ladder for a second time

Clarington January 22, 2020/- The Municipality of Clarington would like to thank community partner Boyle Excavating for clearing debris and silt gathered at the fish ladder.

“This is the second time that Boyle Excavating has stepped up and brought specialized heavy equipment to assist Clarington and Valleys 2000 in clearing the Bowmanville fishway. They truly are a great community partner. On behalf of our community, I want to thank them for their stewardship,” said Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster.

Boyle Excavating clears debris from Bowmanville fish ladder

Boyle Excavating was on-site Wednesday morning for half a day clearing all the debris that had travelled downstream following the record rainfall from two week’s ago. The company has large, specialized excavating equipment for this job that Clarington does not own. They are doing this work at no cost to the Municipality. Clearing the fishway will certainly support the local ecosystem and assist the salmon run which takes place late summer into the fall. During that time thousands of spawning salmon make their way up the Bowmanville Creek to the fish ladder. It’s quite the local attraction.

Boyle Excavating is a family-owned and operated business located in Bowmanville and founded in 1973.
