Survey UPD20-MAU01

Project Supervisor: Gillian O'Doherty, Alaska Department of Fish and Game — Anchorage, AK
Observers: Gillian O'Doherty, Kim Clark

Overall Fish Passage Rating: Green

Tidal: No
Backwatered: No

Step Pools: Yes
Construction Year: 2019

Comments: There are 2 natural steps above inlet formed by logs. Adult salmon observed above steps. The OHW was not re-measured in 2020; the stream widths that were taken in 2009 to determine the OHW was used for the OHW here. Embedded depth per the design and measurements.
