CLEAR CREEK RESTORATION PROJECT
QCI worked with representatives of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Baker County Association of Conservation Districts to provide topographic surveying, permitting assistance, develop design drawings, and provide construction oversight to replace four existing irrigation diversion structures on Clear Creek, a tributary of Pine Creek, with combination concrete crest/rock weir structures to allow for improved passage for migrating bull trout. The existing improvised diversion structures were a combination of steel, broken concrete, and gravel push-up dams. Design flows range from 2.5 to 11 cubic feet per second with a total diversion head differential up to approximately 30 inches.
