Nilkitkwa River Fish Passage Restoration

Assessment found that a pre-code fish crossing on an unnamed stream in the Nilkitkwa river watershed acted as a partial barrier to juvenile fish passage upstream due to high culvert slope and water velocity at high flows, and that a culvert outflow drop acted as a seasonal barrier. To allow for easy fish passage, a multi-plate open-bottom culvert was installed following fish salvage efforts.
