Upstream Weir

Many of the base stones will be fused to the bedrock with steel pins and adhesive to ensure the boulders never move. Here you see the weir furthest upstream nearing completion. The challenge of building the wiers is not just to help move the fish up in elevation, much like a fish ladder does, but to make the weirs look as natural as possible.
