Here is a link for the new Camp Meeker Dam & Market Street passage barrier removal video!!
For those who have been following the Dutch Bill Creek Dam Removal and Restoration Project, our construction partner Prunuske Chatham, Inc. has just started the implementation of Phase II to complete this project. Today, Michael Fawcett, PhD and Sierra Cantor (GRRCD Ecologist) moved hundreds of fish (steelhead) upstream of the project to a safe refuge downstream, and construction should commence by next week.
As a kick off to this final phase of the project, I invite you to view the shortened version of the video and then come down and check out the site. When its done, come get your feet wet – and next year hopefully come see the salmon happily spawning.
Make sure you have the sound on – the input from the community and our restoration partners really make the video into a story worth listening to. Please feel free to distribute as you wish. The longer version (also on our website) is equally entertaining, if not more so – its just, well, longer….
Special thanks to the Camp Meeker Recreation and Park District, the Camp Meeker Community, Prunuske Chatham, Inc, Questa Engineering and Streamline Engineering for their awsome partnership. Stay cool – lisa
