The project includes replacing fish ladders, upgrading fish screens and bypass pipes and implementing improvements at both sites while addressing the water needs of the landowners and owners of the infrastructure. The Project will improve anadromous fish passage upstream (through fish ladder replacement) and downstream (with fish screen/bypass pipe upgrades) of the project sites.
