PASSAGE OF ANADROMOUS FISH THROUGH HIGHWAY DRAINAGE STRUCTURES

HIGHWAY DRAINAGE STRUCTURES CAN BE AN IMPASSABLE BARRIER TO THE MIGRATION OF ANADROMOUS FISH AND THEREBY DAMAGE THE FISHERIES RESOURCE OF AN AREA. INVESTIGATION OF 40 EXISTING DRAINAGE STRUCTURES INDICATES THAT THESE STRUCTURES CAN BE DESIGNED SO AS NOT TO BE A BLOCKAGE TO MIGRATING FISH. A DESIGN PROCEDURE IS PRESENTED WHICH ENABLES THE ENGINEER TO DETERMINE IF A GIVEN STRUCTURE REQUIRES SPECIAL CONSIDERATION FOR FISH PASSAGE. /AUTHOR/
