Information was updated in the Passage Assessment Database (PAD). The PAD Aministrator compiled and checked this information for accuracy before entering it into the database.The PAD Administrator also provided training and public outreach for users. Note: The total cot of this project increased due to cost share prices increasing.

Project Benefit    

The PAD provides a common platform for prioritization of fish passage improvement projects in a rational, methodical and pro-active way.

          Description and scope of the plan implemented
          The Passage Assessment Database (PAD), once referred to as the Coastal Conservancy database (see explanation in Background information), compiles, and standardizes fish passage barrier data from multiple sources allowing for a broader, watershed-based, and systematic analysis of stream habitat fragmentation. The PAD identifies 6,226 total and partial barriers within the State of California; and 3,765 total and partial barriers and 4,260 potential barriers within the FRGP extent. By collating and disseminating passage data in a standardized and easily accessible format, the PAD provides the means by which interested parties may review barriers not merely as individual units, but as a series of features that fragment salmonid habitat within a given watershed.
