Category Category: Restoration
City of Bremerton proposes to replace a culvert and restore a section of Kitsap Creek that flows through a 200 ft long 72" culvert, 35 feet below the road surface. The project is located at Northlake Way NW and Kitsap Lake Rd in the City of Bremerton, Kitsap County, where Kitsap Lake flows into Kitsap Creek, a tributary of Chico Creek. The long, steep culvert is undersized and a partial fish barrier (33% passability). In the mid 1990's, stainless steel weir plates (baffles) were installed inside of the concrete culvert to help salmon migrate through the pipe which has been marginally successful. The Priority Index (PI) for this barrier removal project is 45.61. By eliminating this barrier we will open 1,082 square meters of spawning area and 104,170 square meters of rearing area for coho, chum, steelhead, and cutthroat trout (WDFW, Busby/Hird: Fish Passage and Diversion Screening Inventory Database, Habitat Survey Summary Report, 2/15/2006). Design deliverables will meet the standards outlined in Salmon Recovery Manual 18 Appendix D-2. This project is called out as Action K5 in the Chico Creek Watershed Assessment for the Identification of Protection and Restoration Actions (2014).
