Site 18A Culvert Replacement and Fish Passage
This Construction activities began during the spring of 2016 along Steelhead Creek near Northgate to replace a small sized culvert with a larger culvert. Though the culvert was replaced by fall of 2016 the planting and seeding were delayed due to the high water along the creek that inundated (as designed) the site. Site preparation and restoration activities are anticipated to begin during the summer of 2017 as soon as the water receeds.    Learn More
