Ecologically Enhanced Culvert Replacement Practice

The FishWay RX system incorporates a natural vegetated EnvirolokTM  structural wall and a pre-engineered pre-built grated bridge. The Fishway RX bridge span will allow light and water into the stream bed enhancing the native plants community, while providing a seamless passage for aquatic organisms. The Envirolok vegetated bag wall consists of geosynthetic bags filled with engineered soils. This system provides the best solution to an engineered MSE wall, while maintaining the biological function of a streambank. FishWay RX can be designed to storm events minimizing washouts and extending the life of the crossing. The Envirolok system is locked into place with geosynthetic strapping, anchor spikes, and completed with native plant vegetation that provides a natural habitat for fish migration.
