Survey UPD21-MAR09

Project Supervisor: Kim Clark, ADFG — Anchorage, AK
Observers: Kim Clark, Michael Mazzacavallo

Overall Fish Passage Rating: Green

Tidal: No
Backwatered: No

Step Pools: No
Construction Year: 2018

Comments: Site is just below the confluence at inlet of 2 tributaries. Main water flow comes from the tributary at 70 degrees, the other tributary is at 20 degrees. Stream gradient is from designs. Coho observed upstream from inlet, Flows downstream parallel to roadway for 1000 feet. Top half of channel inside culvert is pool with wetted width spanning whole culvert and bottom half of channel is a riffle.
