DESCRIPTION
This restoration project is to correct a 0% passable fish barrier culvert on an unnamed tributary to Newskah Creek at road mile 3.4 on Newskah Road southeast of Aberdeen, Washington.  The barrier will be removed and replaced with a structure that is passable to all aquatic species and life stages in order to open full migration access to 1.34 miles of excellent spawning and rearing habitat in forestlands. Four species of salmonids will benefit from the improved habitat conditions in the Chehalis Basin as a result of these projects, including coho, chum, steelhead and cutthroat trout.  The project was designed and permitted under SRFB grant 19-1185; the current grant is for the construction phase.
