Monday 2 April 2012: Middle Fork Nooksack Diversion Dam

Got to check-in on a project for the City today related to a road and culvert washout that happened back in 2009. It's good to see our recommendations get implemented albeit a few years later.

Now if only multiple studies and expert's recommendations could be implemented through the removal of the existing dam and inlet works. The problem is the existing dam and diversion was not constructed to allow for fish passage essentially blocked the majority of aquatic habitat within the Middle Fork to anadromous fish (ie. salmon). I suppose if the Elwha and White Salmon River dam removals have taught us anything it's that persistence can pay off...
