The Nez Perce Soil and Water Conservation District (NPSWCD) will repair approximately 100 feet of Tom Beall Creek with a combination of stream channel improvements and removal of a fish passage barrier. This project is to repair the channel function and to provide steelhead migration during all life stages (eliminate the current passage barrier). This project is needed in order to provide passage connectivity for steelhead adults spawning and juveniles. The project is located in a known spawning area, has perennial flow and good habitat conditions upstream and downstream of the site. This site is an annual barrier blocking access to 4 miles of habitat.

Phase 1 of this project was a design phase funded by the Idaho Office of Species Conservation through the Pacific Coast Salmon Recovery Fund. Phase 1 will be completed in December 2019.

Project Benefit    

The steelhead migration barrier is removed allowing fish passage to occur during all life stages and at all flow levels. Benefits to salmonids include access to upstream and downstream refugia and habitat during summer months.
