    Access (Passage)

  • Habitat = Hydraulic DiversityFast/slowDeep/shallow

  • Habitat VariesSpeciesLife stage

  • Glendale Creek Project AreasRoad WashoutFish Passage

  • Road WashoutIsland County (2009) Stabilize Stream Banks Remove Road Fill Add Habitat ElementsFocus: Passage

  • Middle ReachTulalip Tribe (2010) Add Large Wood Stabilize StreamFocus: Habitat

  • Lower ReachFocus: Channel and Slope StabilityFish Passage/Spawning

  • Challenges in the Lower ReachUndercut Road PrismUnstable SoilsChannel Down-CuttingNarrow Channel Segments
