As a damaged portion of Sevenmile Creek was closed Thursday, wildlife officials were on hand to electroshock and relocate the fish that became trapped there.  

Water will now flow into a newly restored channel, returning the creek to its original floodplain, and volunteers assisted biologists by hauling buckets of the saved fish from one channel to the other. 

According to Prickly Pear Land Trust, this will improve the condition of the creek overall and allow for healthier riparian vegetation and habitat.
