Project goals are to:
1. Partner with private timber company to share costs on the project. Project makes good fish sense for TU by restoring passage, reducing sediment load and harmful erosion, and good fiscal sense for company by reducing maintenance costs from poorly sited road and increasing habitat stewardship interest from investors. Company voluntarily re-sited road away from stream.
2. Starting at culvert highest in the watershed of the nine targeted for removal, remove fill and culvert while recontouring stream banks to replicate pre-road conditions. "Walk" heavy equipment down road to next culvert to be removed, then next, then next, decommissioning and "ripping" and re-contouring road as proceeding. Recolonization by native trees occurs very quickly on ripped road prisms in soils in this area. Fish salvage and sediment controls put in place during construction.
