The natural gray color of the concrete was hand stained in August of 2012 to match the colors and hues of the surronding natural stone. This was a requirement of the historical compliance process as was the use of concrete instead of natural stone. Many within the project and village would have like to use natural stone on the face of the fish ladder. However, the historical interests required that the fish ladder blend with the historical character of the village while staying true to the methods of constrcution commonly used during its period of construction.
