East Fork Tunk Creek

The contract for the East Fork Tunk Creek culvert replacement was awarded to CCFEG in 2012 under the Family Forests and Fish Passage Program. Tunk Creek is a tributary to the Okanogan river, and is located near the town of Riverside. CCFEG contracted Wuesthoff Excavation to remove the culvert and construct a 40 foot long steel bridge at this site in the summer of 2013 opening up 6.31 miles of stream and improving fish passage.
