Using NOAA/American Rivers Partnership funding, California State Parks developed designs to remove/modify all barriers to endangered southern California steelhead trout within the Arroyo Sequit watershed, located in northern Los Angeles County, CA. Removal of two Arizona dry weather crossings and one check dam provided immediate access to 4.5 miles of habitat for a NMFS Core 2 recovery population.
The project was selected by the Obama administration as one of 14 projects in the nation to be fast-tracked for federal permitting. See https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/10/11/obama-administration-announces-selection-14-infrastructure-projects-be-e
