Document Description
The project includes removing an 11-foot long by 45-foot wide concrete sill known as the Bonde weir, re-grading and excavating the creek bed, and installing a roughened channel in its place. The Bonde Weir spans the entire creek width and is a barrier for fish passage under low and high flows. The roughened channel will be engineered to remain relatively stable using a framework of large boulders with a matrix of heterogeneous mix of cobbles, gravel, sand, and silt.
