The Harris Creek side channel was built to increase the amount of rearing and spawning habitat for Coho (Oncorhynchus kisutch),and Chinook (Oncorhynchus tshawytsha), salmon in the San Juan River watershed. The side channel was
constructed in the floodplain at this location to capitalize on a section of prime rearing habitat approximately 800 meters in length. An increase of flow into this section enhances rearing habitat that would otherwise suffer from low flows and low dissolved oxygen through the summer (McIntosh and Wright, 2007).
