For this Design-Build project, the Crooked River Watershed Council selected GeoEngineers and AC to design and construct fish passage improvements, small dam removals, and habitat enhancement measures.
The project included the removal of 3 diversion dams while maintaining existing irrigation and allowing for fish passage. Aquatic Contracting also harvested, hauled and installed over 100 trees for habitat and stability. A 160 foot long side channel was constructed along with 10 rock weirs and 180 feet of new irrigation pipe.
Utilizing the design-build process with GeoEngineers, the Crooked River Watershed council created a project that minimized design, administration and permitting costs, provided flexibility during construction, and allowed for AC to satisfy not only client needs but landowner needs as well.
