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 Inventories (FFHI) to determine fish presence. As a result of the pre-field review, International Forest Products Limited, Adams Lake Lumber Division, selected seventeen culvert crossings for further field assessment.
This project involved the identification of eleven non-natural barriers (culverts) and one partial barrier to fish passage. Six high risk sites that are full barriers to fish passage are recommended for replacement in addition to one moderate risk site, which is a partial barrier to fish passage.
