Culvert Replacement on Owens Creek

Those cutthroat trout just can't handle the velocity of water dumping through our giant culvert on Owen's Creek during their spawning months in November and December. The Long Tom Watershed Council is spear-heading culvert replacement on a number of creeks in the Long Tom Watershed, including ours currently. Shown is the old culvert, rip-rap placement, and footings for the new bridge. The bridge will be completed in the next month.
