DESCRIPTION
The primary objective of this project is to provide fish access into isolated tributary habitats and the off-channel floodplain habitat of Nason Creek. This was achieved through the construction of an opening in the BNSF railroad prism by installing an 89' span bridge. The improved passage connects surface flows from the Coulter, Roaring, and Gill Creek basins to Nason Creek resulting in the reconnection of 14.9% of the Upper Nason Creek Basin. The project allows juvenile and adult Chinook and Steelhead access to 83.1 acres of high flow and 6.8 acres of low flow rearing and refuge habitat. Also, it provides steelhead access to 1 mile of lower Coulter Creek and steelhead and Chinook access to 0.75 mile of lower Roaring Creek.
