Project final deliverables include: all design plans, an installed fish ladder and baffles and a final report summarizing the project. Specific project activities include: 1) Installation of a fish ladder to the apron of the culvert at STH 42 on Fish Creek which will allow fish easier access to the culvert; 2) Installation of baffles inside the culvert which will help concentrate the water flow during times of low water and also provide a place for the fish to get out of the current and rest when needed; 2) Coordination with agencies such as WisDOT, WDNR, US Army Corps of Engineers (USACOA), and US Fish & Wildlife Service as identified in the selected design from Miller Engineers Scientists; 4) Hold at least one public meeting regarding this project; and 5) Summarize the project in a final report. Special Conditions: 1) Prior to construction, the Town will obtain all requisite landowner access and permits as required from WDNR, the USACOE, Door County, and other regulatory agencies or municipalities.
