In 2005, a group of companies and government agencies came together under the umbrella of fRI Research with the goal of developing a better system to inventory, manage and repair stream crossings. The Foothills Stream Crossing Partnership (FSCP), a multi-industry partnership with the objective of improving the condition and performance of stream crossings by inventorying, prioritizing, repairing barriers to fish passage, and maintaining watershed health, was the result of this meeting. Since 2006, 8,400 stream crossings have been inspected at least once, for a total of 16,000 inspections. Since 2011, FSCP members have mitigated fish barriers at over 200 stream crossings and have scheduled the repair of fish barriers in 55 priority watersheds looking forward to 2020.
