What's Happening
Options for this project are being studied and considered as of December 2016.                   
About the Project
The goal of this project is to improve fish habitat and water quality for the lower part of the creek and Burley Lagoon. The existing culverts near the Park and Ride and under the Purdy Chevron gas station are considered partial barriers for fish passage. 
Benefits include:
  • Improves fish passage for coho, chum, steelhead and cutthroat trout to move upstream to spawn and rear.
  • Improves water quality and in-stream habitat.
Public Meeting:
A public meeting was held January 16, 2014, at Peninisula High School. Community members who attended learned about the two project options being considered. People were asked for their input on the options. Meeting resources can be found in Project Plans and Documents.
