WEST CREEK WATERSHED RESTORATION
Site 11 was primarily impaired due to the presence of a low head dam. We completely removed the dam and installed grade controls.
Cuyahoga River Restoration
We constructed the drop at each step to allow all fish to pass safely and easily. The pools we constructed between each step help to dissipate energy and offer a refuge for fish to rest.
The step-pool sequences also allow sediment to move downstream to ensure channel migration and prevent mid-channel bars from forming.
