The Beaver State Podcast Episode 89: Repairing culverts to give fish access to more habitat

April 8, 2022

The Oregon Department of Transportation is the largest owner of stream crossings in the state of Oregon, and much of their culvert infrastructure is in need of repair. So, ODOT and ODFW developed the Culvert Repair Programmatic Agreement to address fish passage during temporary repairs to failing culverts. So far, the project has made more than 840 miles of newly accessible habitat available to fish, but there are thousands of culverts still in need of repair. We talk to ODOT's Fish Passage Coordinator Allen Gillette and ODFW's Fish Passage Liaison Pete Baki about the project in this week's podcast.
