Project Details

The Dair Creek Fish Passage Project provided the following habitat and species benefits:
1) full fish passage to brook and brown trout, steelhead, and salmon to 8 miles of heavily forested, coldwater habitat in Dair Creek; 2) restored creek flows to almost a quarter mile of original streambed that has been dry; and 3) prevented additional erosion of the man-made channel due to the current condition of the barrier and the steep embankments that were established when the channel was originally excavated.
