Alameda Creek Fish Passage and Related Projects

Creating a More Fish-Friendly Waterway

In an effort to restore steelhead trout to Alameda Creek, ACWD and a number of Bay Area agencies have worked for more than a decade to make the creek a more fish-friendly waterway. To improve fish passage through the Alameda Creek Flood Control Channel, ACWD's fish passage projects at its water supply facilities include: the removal of one rubber dam; construction of fish ladders at two rubber dams; and the installation of fishscreens at off-stream diversions.

All construction projects are slated for completion by late 2021.
