Access to the site is obtained by traveling west on Highway 24 from Little Fort and then onto the 1900 Road which is also referred to as the Windy Mountain Forest Service Road (FSR). The structure scheduled for replacement crossed an unnamed tributary at 64km on the Windy Mountain FSR. Historical information on the unnamed tributary did not reveal information pertaining to fish presence. The tributary is an inlet to Bowers Lake which is known to contain rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and Longnose sucker (Catostomus catostomus). In addition, Needa Lake, which is situated south of the site, also supports rainbow trout and longnose sucker .
The existing culvert (plates 1, and 2) was previously determined to be a barrier to fish
passage and was therefore scheduled for replacement in 2008. Environmental monitoring and fish salvage occurred from September 4, 2008 to September 8, 2008 under fish salvage permit number KA08-47572.
