Document Description
A steelhead/rainbow trout migration passage impediment exists at the California State Highway 1 Bridge crossing over Salsipuedes Creek near the City of Lompoc in the Santa Barbara County. The impediment is a casacade structure at the base of a concrete rock apron that extends approximately 40 ft. downstream of the bridge and spans the entire width of the creek channel. Steelhead/rainbow trout attempting to negotiate the obstacle during low flow conditions can become serioiusly injured or killed when they jump from the pool and land on the concrete boulder surface above. The project will modify the structure to create a migration path for fish during low flow periods, by strategically placing river rock to create a small pool midway up the cascade, and to build up the crest of the structure to redirect low volume flows towards the small pool. River rock will be secured to the existing structure using rebar and concrete. These minor modifications will not compromise the integrity of the bridge footings.
