McAleer Creek underwent its annual cleaning during the first week of July.

A crew from King County removed the fish before the water was diverted. Fish were taken to the access culvert on 35th Ave NE entering Brookside School.

King County's fish count was Coho 77, Cutthroat 3, Lamprey 3, and Crayfish 1. All were returned to the stream after the cleaning was completed.

Silt and debris were dredged from the bypass to allow the water to flow freely. The Creek is now ready for 2016-17 winter rains.
