Eyak Lake Restoration Part 2
In part 2, we will look at the proposed changes and restoration to various locations around Eyak Lake. The project includes replacing many inefficient culverts with fish friendly access culverts for spawning salmon and a short bridge segment near Mavis Island to improve sediment and turbidity formation along the shore where salmon spawn. Signs of lake erosion and habitat destruction can be seen when driving along Power Creek Road and the Copper River Highway near Mavis Island. The area near road access to Mavis Island where float planes are tied is an area of concern because of silting.
