Project: Alameda Creek Fish Passage

Description: Restoration/Enhancement for the purpose of Stream Flow Enhancement under Stream Flow Program in Alameda county.

Reference Number: 36402018012

Implemented By: Alameda County Water District

Objective: The project is a voluntary effort spearheaded by the Alameda County Water District (ACWD) and the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (ACFCD) to provide new flow releases in Alameda Creek and construct two concrete fish ladders around existing fish passage barriers that will allow volitional access to high value habitat upstream of the project location. The stream flow enhancement coupled with remediation of the two passage barriers is a critical component of the regional effort to restore the California Central Coast Steelhead (CCC Steelhead) which was federally listed as a threatened species in 1997. The project is specifically identified as a high priority action in the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Coastal Multispecies Final Recovery Plan released in 2016.
