DESCRIPTION
This project involved the removal of three fish barrier culverts and the installation of replacement structures (three new bridges) that will open up fish spawning and rearing habitat on Beaver Creek.

This culvert replacement was a part of a greater effort entitled 'The Upper Wenatchee Passage Program' (UWPP) a collaborative effort between Chelan County Natural Resource Department, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to acquire funds to replace nine barrier culverts that interrupted adult and juvenile salmonid passage in the Chiwawa and Middle Wenatchee subwatersheds. The biological goal of the UWPP was to increase fish passage into Alder Creek (2 culverts), Clear Creek (3 culverts), Beaver Creek (3 culverts) and Skinney Creek (2 culverts). All fish passage UWPP barriers (except Skinney Creek #1 due to an upcoming DOT highway realignment project) have now been replaced thanks to funding from the Salmon Recovery funding board and the Tributary Committee.
