Millstream Creek Fishway Project: Photo Update

This project is led by Peninsula Streams Society (PSS) to construct a fishway at the Atkins Road culvert, near Mill Hill Regional Park. Fish passage is currently blocked by a high culvert under Atkins Road. The new fishway will construct fourteen step-pools leading up to the culvert, and add steel baffles to aid fish movement through it.

The fishway will allow fish to ascend past the culvert to access 7+ kilometers of habitat for spawning and rearing Cutthroat and Coho salmon.

More details on this project may be found here. The images here give some sense of the challenge and work involved.
