Site Observations:

  1. Constriction ratio red

Comments: Datum = WGS84. gps accuracy = 24.7 ft. Erosion control fabric wrapped around entire inlet fill slope. Beaver pond located upstream of culvert.. 2016 Site visit notes: Big scour pool at outlet. Silt fence and landscape fabric all over site. Evidence of road failures. Site rating changed to Red to reflect constriction, culvert is not backwatered.
