This project supported work by the National Park Service in the removal of human-made fish barriers, and restoring stream habitat to both facilitate steelhead restoration and serve as a location for environmentally sensitive educational outreach and public use. The project involved the removal of three check dams and four Arizona crossings. Upon project completion and the downstream barriers at Pacific Coast Highway and Corral Canyon were removed, the federally endangered southern steelhead had access to Solstice Creek from the ocean to the waterfall by Tropical Terrace (approx. 1.8 miles). The project was an integral element of the overall fish passage barrier removal and creek restoration program.
