Document Description
The project is limited to replacement of a failing, inadequate streamflow gauging weir on Silver Creek with a new concrete gauging weir with a footprint of approximately 340 square feet. The weir will consist of a wing wall, low flow flume, and a weir box. The gauging weir will be attached to existing bedrock within the stream. The project will be constructed in two phases with only part of the stream being dewatered during each pahse to minimize any risk of adverse impacts to aquatic life within Silver Creek.
