- Shippagan Gully, New Brunswick

Research Centre: Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering
Acknowledging the value of Shippagan Gully to the economy, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) initiated a project to find the best way to improve the navigation conditions in the channel. But before any infrastructure building could begin, they needed to assess the impact that any new structures would have on wave and current activity. To do so, they turned to engineers at Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), researchers from the University of Ottawa and technical experts from the National Research Council (NRC) for help.
