Document Description
The Contra Costa Resource Conservation District (CCRCD) is proposing fish passage improvements along Pinole Creek at a culvert beneath I-80 in Contra Costa County, CA. Currently, the 400-foot long Pinole Creek culvert under I-80 is a barrier to the upstream migration of juvenile and adult steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) because it lacks sufficient water depth and produces excessive water velocities (Figure 2 - Site Plan). The proposed Pinole Creek Fish Passage Improvement Project would improve migration and access to upstream spawning and rearing habitat through implementation of a baffled fishway notch, training walls, and a notched sill in the western culvert bay, and a 60-foot roughened rock chute in the existing flood control channel.
