The Stream Simulation Design Approach for Providing Aquatic Organism (AOP) Passage at Road-Stream Crossings

Hosted in coordination with the
USFS National Stream & Aquatic Ecology Center,
USFS National Aquatic Organism Passage Design Assistance Team,
and USFS Regions

Objectives & Description:

Participants learn the necessary skills to ...

  • demonstrate the stream simulation methodology of collecting and interpreting channel and roadway data at road-stream crossing sites;
  • applying and integrating these data to develop design channels and road-stream crossing structures;
  • effectively constructing stream simulation designs.

Focus is on the USDA Forest Service stream simulation method, an ecosystem-based approach for designing and constructing road-stream crossings that provide unimpeded fish and other aquatic organism passage through the structure. Stream simulation integrates fluvial geomorphology concepts and methods with engineering principles to design a road-stream crossing that contains a natural and dynamic channel through the structure, restoring ecological processes and connectivity along the stream corridor.

Target Audience:
Engineers, hydrologists, biologists, geologists, etc. that are actively involved in the design of road-stream crossing structures.


Tuition: Free ($0) for FS. Non-FS might have a tuition. Participant pays travel and per diem.
