Overall Fish Passage Rating: Black

Step Pools: No
Construction Year:


Comments: Site visit to take photos and get baseline information. This culvert was not included in the 2009-11 MSB Project. Site still needs full assessment. Culvert looks undersized for creek but rust line and moss accumulation show this site does not take much more water. Headwaters for creek about a half mile upstream. Upstream looks fairly shallow, but there are a few pools. A visit in the summer should be attempted to see if this section of the creek goes dry and to trap for fish presence. Currently the creek is cataloged to this crossing, but anadromy likely extends farther upstream. Creek also appears to be over widened upstream and downstream from the culvert due to human activity.
