Pringle Creek Stream Restoration
Otak’s water and natural resources and structural engineering professionals are helping the City of Salem restore lower Pringle Creek, a major tributary to the Willamette River. Highlights include demolishing a historic mill, improving fish passage by replacing a concrete fish ladder with a natural channel, and rebuilding an embankment to support a future pedestrian trail extension. Once constructed, a greenway corridor will be re-established for the first time since at least the 1870s. The restored stream design will facilitate fish passage for salmon and other aquatic species.
