Featured SRF Conference Workshop: Fish Passage Design Workshop and Field Tour
The 2020 SRF Conference will feature a two-day option called Fish Passage Design for Road Crossings Workshop and Field Tour, coordinated by Michael Love.
This two-day workshop will focus on fish passage design approaches and techniques for road-stream crossings and other low-head barriers. The course will be structured around Part XII – Fish Passage Design and Implementation - of the CDFW California Salmonid Stream Habitat Restoration Manual. The workshop is intended for participants with a variety of backgrounds, including engineers, biologist, geologist, planners, and project managers, and will have participants work on sample problems taken from real projects, including analysis of thalweg profiles, developing designs for a stream simulation culvert crossing, and sizing material for a roughened channel. The second half of Day 2 will include a field tour to a range of fish passage sites within Santa Cruz’s Corralitos Creek. Sites include full replacements and retrofits of stream crossings and a fish ladder, illustrating the various design approaches covered in the workshop and described in CDFW Part XII.
