Huckleberry Island Dam Modification
cbec was contracted to investigate the feasibility of modifying or removing the Huckleberry Island Dam to improve passage conditions.
Huckleberry Island Dam is located on the San Lorenzo River in Santa Cruz County provides an impediment to fish passage under certain flow conditions. cbec conducted site reconnaissance and field surveys including topographic surveys of the dam site, and photo documentation to help developed design alternatives. Design modifications included partial to complete removal of the dam structure, removal of sediment and modification to retaining wall. A future phase of the project will include preparation of construction documents at a 60% and 100% level of completion.
