Green River Fish Passage Project Completed

October 22, 2007

After changing ownership, the operators of the Green River Trout Farm reached a legal settlement with the State of Michigan which allowed them to operate the Trout Farm on a designated Natural River. The agreement also called for the removal of the dam. The State entered into an agreement with CRA to help design and implement the project. CRA hired Spicer Group to design the project, and six months was spent finalizing that design.
After the design phase, CRA again partnered with Spicer Group to hire a contractor to implement the step-pool system designed to allow free passage of fish while maintaining upstream water levels necessary for operation of the trout farm. The construction phase took two months, and the result is a stream free from obstruction with a more natural downstream flow of sediments, fish, and nutrients.
Funding for this project was provided by:
US Fish & Wildlife Service
National Fish & Wildlife Foundation
USDA Conservation
Innovation Grant
CRA’s River Care Fund
MDNR Fisheries Division
Oleson Foundation
Frey Foundation
Private Funders including: Michael Dow, Nestle Ice Mountain, Charlevoix County Community Foundation
