Kleanza Creek Spawning Weirs – Feasibility

Kleanza Creek historically provided mainstem and side-channel spawning habitat for chum, chinook, coho and pink salmon as well as steelhead. In 1966, a new bridge was built because of a highway re-alignment, and a 600 meter section of the creek was trained to go under the bridge This project proposes to assess the feasibility of installing engineered rock weirs in the mainstem stretch that was trained. These weirs would capture smaller substrates, restoring viable spawning in the affected areas.
