County Begins Woodacre Fish Passage Project

The Marin County Department of Public Works will begin construction on the County's latest fish passage project to help coho salmon migrate into Woodacre Creek to spawn. This fish passage project will restore unimpeded access to approximately 7,900 feet (or 1.5 miles) of coho and steelhead salmon habitat in the Woodacre Creek watershed.
This is the fourth major project to remove barriers to fish migration since the beginning of the County's fish passage program in 2001.

"I'm excited to see our first salmon restoration project of the summer get underway," said Supervisor Steve Kinsey. "This project is a continuation of the County's decade-long commitment to improve our fishery resources throughout Marin."

The cost of the project is $98,765 and is funded by the State Department of Fish and Game. The construction contract was awarded to Maggiora Ghilotti Inc. with the creek work expected to be completed by the beginning of July before a paving project begins on San Geronimo Valley Drive. The fish passage project will retrofit an existing concrete box culvert and add a natural rocky ramp to help the fish navigate the creek in any water level.

Later this summer, the County will begin a similar fish passage project on Kent Canyon Creek in Muir Woods, which will compliment on-going efforts to restore salmon runs in the Redwood Creek watershed.
