Site Observations:

  1. Culvert sagging in middle
  2. Constriction ratio red

Comments: Culvert length was measured across road with laser. Not enough room to shoot within pipe. Upstream of inlet there is a build up of debris behind 4x4 posts. Stickleback observed upstream. Stickleback and juvenile coho observed downstream. Garbage in stream at site.
