Description:
A Fish Passage Culvert Inventory Project consists of four phases. This report consists of Phase 2, the Data Collection Phase and Phase 3, the Analysis Phase.
During Phase 2 closed bottom structures not eliminated in Phase 1 were assessed for fish passage and fish habitat. Fish passage was determined by calculating a Fish Barrier Score (FBS), which used hydraulic surrogate parameters that were assigned specific values. Fish passage was determined to either be passage, potential barrier, or barrier. Fish habitat was determined based on the Fish-stream Crossing Guidebook, hich qualifies habitat as marginal, important, critical or no fish habitat. In Phase 3 closed bottom structures that were determined to be a barrier or potential barrier to
fish passage in Phase 2 were further assessed and the most cost effective solution was determined to restore fish passage.
