Category 4: Environmental Protection and Enhancements Award of Excellence, image of project First Creek Fish Passage, Southwest of Chelon, Washington

First Creek Fish Passage,
Southwest of Chelan, Washington

Designer:
Washington State Department of Transportation,
Wenatchee, WA

Contractor:
Goodfellow Brothers, Inc., Wenatchee, WA

The structure was created to restore fish passage to historic spawning habitat. The culverts installed 50 years ago had adversely affected the fish population in upper First Creek. Today, the environment of the area has been preserved and enhanced, and the stream has been improved for fish passage. The project site is still being monitored and further developed with grant funding and the work of volunteers.
