Project Details

An adjustable hydraulic structure (AHS) was constructed within the Grand River at Grand Rapids, MI to produce hydraulic conditions which impede upstream migration of the invasive sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus).  This project investigated the optimum design configuration for the AHS to maintain key hydraulics across the full range of flows in the Grand River.  Results from the project provide critical information to the construction and operation of the AHS and for the installation of physical sea lamprey barriers at other locations within the Great Lakes Fishery.
