DESCRIPTION
The problem is a 0% passable fish passage barrier culvert under Newskah Road on an unnamed tributary to Newskah Creek south of Aberdeen in the South Bay Subbasin. The degraded watershed process this project addresses is fish migration access to upstream spawning and rearing habitat. The solution is to remove the barrier culvert and replace it with a structure that is passable to all species and life stages of salmonids and other aquatic species in this unnamed tributary. Project design and permitting have been completed through RCO grant #16-1327; this grant application is for construction funds only. The components of this project include bid packet development and advertising; contractor selection; project implementation including barrier removal and installation of new, larger culvert; monitoring; and planting.
