Description    


With funding from PCSRF FY 2014, 2015, and 2017 project partners were able to complete construction on a large open bottom culvert at the confluence of West Fork Cow Creek and Bolivar Creek in the West Fork Cow Creek Watershed. This new natural bottom culvert replaced a smaller perched culvert that was blocking upstream passage for salmonids and other native aquatic species.

Project Benefit    


The project proposed in this application will address fish passage issues. The replacement of the perched culvert at the confluence of Bolivar Creek and WF Cow Creek will address fish passage issues within the watershed and allow Coho and other fish species in all life stages to access an additional 3.5 miles of habitat that had been cut off to them.
