City of Lostine Diversion Structure Replacement

Located approximately 1 mile south of the the town of Lostine on the Lostine River, was an irrigation diversion which failed to meet state and federal fish passage criteria. In cooperation with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the GRMW developed a project that would restore aquatic organism passage to all species and life stages, maintain the necessary physical characteristics to accommodate irrigation practices, and result in a river channel which is both natural in appearance and function.
