Trout habitat improvement project

LJRA will be executing a major fish habitat/water quality project on the Little Juniata River near Grazierville. This stretch is characterized by wide flat, uniformly shallow water. In times as we are experiencing now, the project area becomes a large solar collector, and serves to super heat the slowly moving water. Our plan, designed by PAFBC Habitat Management folks, includes side deflectors to concentrate and deepen the flow, large mid-stream boulders to create pocket water and aeration. You can see the project site looking downstream from the I-99 ramp at Grazierville.

Due to the COVID situation, PFBC does not want volunteers near the state workers. Unfortunately, volunteers are not needed this time.
