Channel habitat type:   Low gradient confined Catchment acreage:   6,991
Avg. bankfull width:   33 feet Distance from Clackamas R.:   4.7 miles
Upstream fish-bearing length:   16.9 miles
Comments:   This is a concrete weir maintained by a Clackamas County wastewater treatment facility outside of Boring on the North Fork Deep Creek. The County uses the weir to test water quality for permitting purposes. The 27 foot wide weir spans the creek just downstream of the bridge on Ritchey Road. The weir is a partial barrier to juvenile fish because of the jump height and the width of the cement barrier. In addition, the weir’s footing on each bank is eroding.
