Lincoln County Stream Barriers

The purpose of Lincoln County Stream Barriers is to improve access to and the quality of habitat for Atlantic salmon, alewives, sea run rainbow smelt and native brook trout throughout Lincoln County. This map viewer presents information on the location and condition of state and local road culverts that may be adversely affecting access to spawning, rearing habitat and growing habitat for these four important fish species. It is hoped that by making communities aware of these culverts, over time they can be improved, upgraded or replaced as necessary to expand the populations of these species throughout the county.

The Stream Barriers map is available at
