Aquatic Contracting LLC constructed 2,100 feet of new stream channel and installed over 30 log jams and single log structures. The logs were placed to mimic trees falling into the channel. The project was designed and constructed to increase fish habitat and reduce flooding on Fanno Creek.
The new meandering creek channel was constructed and excavated entirely in the dry. Fanno Creek was then carefully diverted while final excavation directed the creek into the new channel. The old channel was filled and shaped into a shallow swale to allow for storm water treatment from adjacent storm drains. Log jams were pinned, roped, and/or anchored into place, and a new bridge was placed over Fanno Creek.
