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.
