- Document Description
- Water diversion infrastructure on Mindego Creek presents a frequent migration barrier to fish. The barrier will be addressed by removing a channel-spanning dam and fish ladder, and relocating the water diversion intake. The project will improve in-stream habitat and restore access to five miles of range for threatened and endangered fish while maintaining the water right diversion for the landowner.
