Repairing and Replacing Fish Passage Barriers
Another important water-related conservation issue we have addressed is the removal of fish passage barriers. Many fish-bearing streams have barriers, including culverts such as these, which block the movement of fish. It is estimated that as many as 40,000 such fish passage barriers may exist on Washington streams.
We recently helped a landowner replace a culvert in order to provide passage for fish to the upper reaches of the stream. Much of the rock for this project came from the site.
