The primary project objective is to improve fish passage conditions for adult steelhead by modifying the physical features at a critical riffle. Using hand tools including winches, chain baskets, and baskets, and levers, serveral 500 to 1,000-pound boulders will be placed at the head of the larger south channel to shunt most water down the north channel at low to moderate flows.

Reasons for Exemption
The purpose of the project is to improve migration opportunities for adult steelhead in the Carmel River by modifying a natural riffle, which has insufficient water depths and a steep, shallow, fast section along its length. These changes consist of minor alterations to a natural stream channel and the local topography to protect fish resources.
