Aquatic Connectivity, Flood Capacity, and Structural Integrity Associated with Road-Stream Crossings: Concepts and Tools for Management

Instructors: Kat Hoenke, Southeastern Aquatic Resource Partnership, Dan Dauwalter, Trout Unlimited, and Carlos Camacho, Idaho Department of Fish and Game

Date and Time: April 29, 2024; Full Day

Lunch: Not provided

Maximum Number of Participants: 30

Description:Aquatic organism passage (AOP), capacity to pass flood flows, and infrastructure integrity are important features of road-stream crossings. This full day workshop will cover these basic features associated with road-stream crossings, how to assess them using common protocols, and how the data can be integrated into frameworks and tools to prioritize crossings for removal, replacement, or improvement. The workshop will highlight a protocol used by the Southeastern Aquatic Resource Partnership (SARP) and show how using it will help build a national database to help prioritize crossings that should be removed or modified to allow for aquatic organism passage. The workshop will include half-day classroom portion and half-day field training portion where organizers will train attendees on how to collect data using the SARP protocol and its associated tools, access the data from SARP’s database, and see how collected data are used in the National Aquatic Barrier Prioritization Tool (
