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.
