Stream Crossing Decommissioning and Fish Passage Barrier Removal

Before: This unculverted Humboldt (log) crossing was failing (see sink holes) and delivering eroded sediment downstream.

Road Outsloping and Rolling Dip Construction, Camp San Luis Obispo

Before: Note the deep wheel ruts and the gully erosion leading to the inboard ditch of this insloped road reach.
