TU eliminated over 14 fish passage barriers in this tributary to the Bear River, replacing existing culverts and diversion dams with bottomless arch culverts and instream rock structures. Phase II of the project involves working with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to build a barrier to prevent non-native trout from moving upstream and reintroducing an inter-connected population of native Bonneville cutthroat trout some of which should move downstream to support at risk populations on the Bear River.
Removing excessively narrow road culverts and replacing outdated headgates and push up dams with with rock cross veins, step pools, and new headgates; building a barrier and reintroducing native fish in cooperation with local landowners.
