Perched Culverts Block Fish Passage

Perched Culverts imageAccording to the U.S. Department of Transportation, a culvert becomes a barrier to fish passage when it demonstrates conditions exceeding fishes' biological ability.

Obstructions include high water velocities, perched culverts, weirs, baffles, caught debris, water pressure increase caused by inlet contraction, and low water flows.

Orvis is currently working with Trout Unlimited to help fix culvert impediments with the goal of reconnecting over 1,000 miles of fishable habitat. LEARN MORE about the TU / Orvis 1,000 mile program here.
