Project Summary:

Our goal was to:

  • Have 2 custom fish passage chutes fabricated

  • Install chutes in spring after snow melt

  • Provide year round fish passage regardless of flow levels

Our goals have been accomplished with a true test coming in late summer 2020.


The project improved fish passage at two nursery streams and improved water flow at two hung culverts. The chutes were also designed to increase water levels in the culvert thus easing fish passage for trout.


The water pools at the down stream end of the culverts are also popular places for birds and other wildlife.
