Description    


Passage barrier was removed at Crossing 5 and a 59 foot-span concrete bottomless-arch culvert replaced it. The barrier removal provides access to 3.17 miles of habitat.

Project Benefit    


The removal of impediment at Crossing 5 on Quiota Creek project, 3.17 miles of upstreat with high-quality critical habitat to southern steelhead, will eliminate any migration delays and open up unimpeded access to significant spawning and rearing habitat for steelhead within the Quiota Creek watershed and improve general access to upper basin habitats within the Santa Ynez River drainage, a Core 1 watershed in the Southern Steelhead Recovery Plan (National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), 2012).
