The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) will improve aquatic organism passage by removing culverts and dams which impede safe fish passage on national forests in Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin. USFS will replace existing culverts with concrete bridges, stabilize selected streams, and restore stream integrity. By Fall 2011, 20 stream road crossing structures will be completed and one dam will be removed. These actions will improve aquatic ecosystem resiliency and will maintain or improve the population of valuable sport fish species and threatened, endangered and sensitive aquatic species.
