Gaviota Creek Fish Passage Improvements

gaviota webClient: South Coast Habitat Restoration

Waterways was retained by South Coast Habitat Restoration to assist with the preparation of preliminary designs (50% level) for improving fish passage at five (5) barriers along Gaviota Creek.  The sites are located north of Gaviota and directly adjacent to Highway 101.  Each barrier is composed of a concrete grade control structure, originally installed to keep the creek from undermining the highway concepts being considered currently range from structural modification of individual weirs to complete removal and channel realignment. 

Waterways has prepared multiple concept level design alternatives for each of the barriers and is awaiting the selection of a preferred alternative by project stakeholders prior to preparing 50% level designs.
