Document Description
The SFPUC proposes to implement the Little Yosemite Fish Passage Project to improve upstream passage conditions for adult anadromous steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) along a 0.4-mile long reach of Alameda Creek referred to as Little Yosemite. Proposed improvements include constructing concrete weirs shaped like natural boulders or bedrock in three strategically located water features. Select boulders would also be cut or removed and some holes, or slots through large boulders, may be filled with concrete to stabilize landing pools at the tops of waterfalls along the fish migration path. The project site is located in the Sunol Regional Wilderness on property owned by City and County of San Francisco that is leased to East Bay Regional Park District. Construction would begin in April 2016 and last up to 4 months.
