Michael’s Brook

This is a small stream system which drains into the Petitcodiac River above the causeway. The overall size of this drainage area is unknown to the PWA. Its arms flow through the Moncton Industrial Park, a small community of mini-homes within the City of Moncton, off of Salisbury Road.

The City of Moncton recognized the need to set aside conservation areas around all urban waterbodies within their city limits in the 2014 Municipal Plan (PlanMoncton), including that of the area possibly conserved around Michael’s Brook (also referred to as Michael’s Creek). A habitat assessment has not been undertaken by the PWA for this stream, however the sampling site which we visit once per month is often not flowing, or has very little flow.
