ELS played a key role in removing fish prior to dewatering an 800-foot section of Salmon Creek in Clark County, Washington for bridge removal, bridge construction, and construction of several pool and riffle complexes to improve fish passage.  An 800-foot section of the creek was diverted around the work area through an underground pipe that was constructed prior to fish removal.  ELS removed 879 fish including coho salmon, steelhead, cutthroat trout, and several other species using electro-shocking and sein netting techniques.  Captured fish were transported and released below the downstream diversion dam.
