The report ?Fish Passage Culvert Inspections Vaseux, Inkaneep, and Penticton Creek Watersheds?, Snowy River Resources Ltd., 2001, identified this location as an upstream barrier to rainbow trout migration in 2001 with a score of 38. The data from the 2001 assessment were retrofitted using the March 2008 Fish Passage Protocol
standards and scored 26 (a full barrier). The existing culverts (photo 1) had been installed prior to 1995, were not embedded, had combined width that was too small
relative to the channel width, high in-pipe water velocities and could convey only 70% of anticipated Q100 flows. An hydrologic assessment and new crossing design were completed in 2007 and the supply and installation of the structure occurred during
September 2009. The assessments that contributed to the decision to
restore fish passage at this crossing are: 1. ?Fish Passage Culvert Inspections Vaseux,
Inkaneep, and Penticton Creek Watersheds?, Snowy River Resources Ltd., 2001, Score = 38; 2. Retrofitted data in FIA Project 5037004, 2008/09, score = 26.
