Description    


The project will develop designs for three passage barriers in the Elk Creek watershed located on Elk Valley Road and will perform instream surveys to identify habitat use.



Objectives include: 1) improve fish passage to spawning habitat; 2) improve downstream migration of juvenile salmonids at a greater range of flows; 3) improve conveyance and capacity for flood flows; and 4) restore hydrologic function and conveyance of sediment and debris.

Project Benefit    


When the newly designed culvert replacements are installed, coho salmon will have unimpeded access to 3.22 miles of spawning habitat and improved ability to migrate downstream at a range of flows allowing for greater occupancy of rearing habitat throughout the basin. Natural fluvial processes including downstream conveyance of gravel substrate will be restored. This rural county road in a disadvantaged community will be protected from flood events.
