This project involved the identification of 15 non-natural barriers (culverts) to fish passage on status and non status roads including 11 sites in the vicinity of Fowler Lake, Finn Creek and Tumtum Lake (FL#A18694) and 4 sites in the vicinity of Thuya Creek and tributaries to Thuya Creek (FL #A18694). As part of the pre-field planning phase, potential culvert sites were selected mainly on the basis of local knowledge, combined with existing inventory data such as Fish Stream Identification (FSID), Fish Habitat Assessments (FHAP), and Fish and Fish Habitat Inventory (FFHI). As a result of the pre-field review, 13 culvert crossings were selected for further field assessment. Fourteen (14) crossings assessed were metal or plastic culvert structures on known or suspected fish-streams and one (1) of the crossings assessed (Site 15, Trib. to Dot Lake) was a wooden box culvert on an assumed or confirmed fish-stream.
