Barrier Removal

Barrier removal is a critical component of stream restoration.

 

A large section of concrete (called an apron) was removed from under the Burton Drive bridge in the East Village . It had prevented fish passage during 65% of the year. The apron was removed during the fall of 2005 and 2006 when Santa Rosa Creek is typically at its lowest flow rate.

 

 

Just upstream from Coast Union High School was a nearly solid causeway across Santa Rosa Creek. It was ranked the highest (most serious) barrier to migration of steelhead trout in San Luis Obispo County. Greenspace received grants to replace this barrier with a bridge so that fish migration can occur without obstruction. Subsequently the county of San Luis Obispo took over the project which was completed in Dec. 2011. This was a complex project requiring cooperation from various agencies, organizations and individuals.
