Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program



Other WHIP priorities in Vermont
  • Dam removal for fish passage
  • Improve fish passage through culverts

Return to Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program Page
Properly designed and installed stream crossings (culverts or bridges), do not limit the passage of fish and other aquatic organisms. These crossings allow for the up and downstream movement of organisms as well as maintain sediment transport continuity.
culvert
bridges
Poorly sized or installed culverts may fragment aquatic habitat and create barriers to the movement of fish and other aquatic organisms. This may lead to loss of access to critical spawning, rearing, feeding or refuge habitat for aquatic organisms.
This improperly installed and improperly sized culvert has created a barrier to fish passage as well as altered the stream system creating unstable conditions down stream.
