trout fry meadow restoration project
The Trout Fry Meadow Restoration project was conceived by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game in conjunction with a private landowner for the purpose of restoring natural processes and function within an approximately 3,400-foot degraded reach of the East Fork of the Potlatch River near Bovill, Idaho. The goal of the project was to improve spawning and rearing habitat for Chinook salmon, steelhead, and resident fish species. Quadrant worked with Headwaters Engineering to complete the design for approximately 1,300 linear feet of newly constructed stream channel, and provide bank stabilization and installation of wood structures for habitat improvement throughout an additional 2,100 linear feet of existing channel. Quadrant personnel also worked with IDFG throughout the permitting, bidding, and contractor selection process, and provided construction oversight and staking for project implementation.
