Quilceda Creek Culvert Replacement - Aquatic Contracting

Snohomish County, WA

In October of 2008 Aquatic Contracting LLC (AC) was contracted by the Tulalip Tribes to improve fish passage and create additional fish habitat along Quilceda Creek.

AC removed a failing culvert, built concrete footings and installed a 40 foot steel bridge. AC then re-built the creek channel to increase sinuosity and flood plain area/capacity. To improve the aquatic and adjacent riparian habitats, AC placed large woody debris throughout the project site. To increase pool-riffle habitat and spawning area, rock weirs were constructed and gravel placed throughout the reach. The entire site was then re-planted with native vegetation.

This project improved the aquatic and adjacent riparian habitats and increased pool-riffle habitat and spawning areas.
