Mussachuck Creek Fishway at Echo Lake

Alewife and blueback herring are small anadromous fish that are an important food source for many freshwater and marine fish, birds, reptiles and mammals. However, many stocks are in decline due to loss of spawning and nursery habitat. The Echo Lake project, in Bristol County Rhode Island, consists of design and construction of a pool and weir fishway along a portion of the Mussachuck Creek to allow fish access to Echo Lake, an approximately 30-acre impoundment with excellent potential river herring spawning habitat. The pool and weir fishway will be attached as an extension to the existing concrete sluice.
