Oak Ranch Creek Project Completion

After years of planning, the Oak Ranch Creek restoration project was completed in September. A new open-bottom culvert installation under Apiary Road near mile marker 16 corrected damage from the flood of 1996 and replaced a narrow culvert that had blocked 75% of fish passage. The new structure restored natural stream functions and made 7 miles of premier spawning, rearing, and refuge habitat accessible.

A big thank you to the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for the grant funding and for work performed Kynsi Construction, Columbia County Road Department, Lower Columbia Engineering and CONTECH!
