Upper Shavers Fork Instream and Riparian Habitat Restoration, Randolph County, WV

This project will restore instream coldwater habitat in approximately one mile of the Shavers Fork mainstem, and restore riparian habitat on both sides of the Shavers Fork mainstem in the restoration reach. A partner project will simultaneously improve fish passage and habitat in Powerhouse Run, another spawning tributary of Shavers Fork. These actions will cool elevated mainstem temperatures both within and downstream of the project area, enhance mainstem habitat, increase access to the mainstem forage base, and facilitate genetic mixing within the metapopulation.
