Six years after Inter-Fluve was contracted to develop alternatives for improving fish passage along the Coonamessett River, a ground-breaking ceremony took place on October 30, 2017 for the small, spring-fed stream flowing south through Falmouth, Massachusetts into Vineyard Sound. A long history of mill construction and cranberry cultivation has contributed to declines in fish populations and [...]

Located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Tidmarsh Farms was a cranberry bog for nearly a century, producing up to 1 percent of Ocean Spray’s entire annual harvest. Over the last few decades, the technology of cranberry farming has changed, leaving many coastal farms - including Tidmarsh - struggling. Inter-Fluve worked with project partners to design and [...]
We’re proud to announce that Inter-Fluve and our project partners received two American Council of Engineering of Oregon (ACEC) awards in 2016: The Grand Award for the Milo McIver Fish Enhancement Project on the Clackamas River with Portland General Electric, and the Engineering Excellence Honor Award for the Horsetail Creek Floodplain Restoration Project with the Lower [...]
Project supporters gathered at the Piscataquis and Penobscot rivers to celebrate completion of the third and final step of the 16-year Penobscot River Restoration Project: the “big river” that was built around the Howland Dam. The project opens access to more than 1,000 miles of river, stream and lake habitat to fish, including river [...]
In early May 2014, a few sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) were spotted spawning in a constructed riffle we built at the State Hospital Dam removal site in Taunton, MA. Upon closer look, there were 36 redds in the channel and other lamprey actively building redds and spawning. We were pretty excited about this – it [...]
The Sheboygan River Area of Concern Habitat Restoration Project was selected as one of the American Public Works Association’s Public Works Projects of the Year for 2014. The project involved the removal of over 400,000 cubic yards of PCB-contaminated sediment from the bed of the river near Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, and in-stream and riparian habitat [...]
Construction began on a unique side channel restoration project on Washington's Methow River with the Yakima Nation Fisheries' Upper Columbia Habitat Restoration Project. The focus of the $2.6 million "1890s Side Channel Restoration Project" is to build a spring-fed infiltration gallery that benefits juvenile salmon during their peak stressful months: cold winter and hot summer. Curious [...]
A few Inter-Fluve staff (Greg Koonce, Mike McAllister, and Josh Epstein) had the rare opportunity to observe several Pacific Lamprey spawning along a 2,500-foot long side channel of Washington's East Fork Lewis River. While not officially listed, Pacific lamprey have declined in abundance due to a variety factors similar to salmon. Historically widespread along the [...]
