In an effort to increase the wild steelhead populations, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game is working to restore steelhead habitat in the Potlatch River system. Part of their approach is to remove barriers that impede access to spawning and rearing habit. In the summer of 2018, Hatter Creek Earthworks LLC completed the Highway 8 Culvert Passage Improvements on Big Meadow Creek project for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. This project installed galvanized steel baffles in an existing culvert under State Highway 8 near Troy Idaho.More ⇒
For this home site, we excavated a large flat pad to be used for the future home and shop site with enough room to turn around a truck and 40-foot trailer.
Here’s a fun culvert replacement project that we did for the United States Forest Service. Watch the video or check out the photos below.

Palouse River Bank Stabilization at Camp Grizzly North of Harvard – 2016
This project constructed to prevent further erosion of the river bank which was threatening to take out a fence and was eating up usable area.
This project was completed on private land and funded by the NRCS. The eroding river bank was threatening to take out a private roadway used to access a private river crossing.
This project was completed on private land and funded by the NRCS. The river bank was moving back several feet each year cutting into valuable farmland. Rip-Rap was placed on the bank with willow cuttings planted between the rocks. Several rock barbs were also constructed to help redirect the flow and reduce the pressure on the bank.
