Fund For Lake Michigan

Pike River Fish Passage Dam removal, bridge construction and stream bed and bank restoration

The Petrifying Springs dam is the last remaining dam on the Pike River and is a significant obstacle to seasonal migrations of fish, including Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, and steelhead. The Fund for Lake Michigan is supporting the removal of the dam and construction of a 40-foot-long clear span bridge to provide fish access to 22 miles of stream and to improve the overall ecological health of the Pike River.
