Description    


The Karuk Tribe is partnered with the local non-profit, Middle Klamath Water Council (MKWC) to plan, design and construct off channel habitats. Major accomplishments of the project includes; securing additional project funding, securing necessary project permits, pre and post project construction monitoring (physical and biological monitoring) and construction of a large off-channel habitat unit including three off channel ponds within the project reach located on Seiad Creek. Furthermore, the first of two off channel ponds planned for the Horse Creek was completed in October 2014. The second off channel pond in Horse Creek was completed in October 2015. Other off channel pond projects located in Titus Creek and lower Seiad Creek were not completed due to un-resolved conflicts with landowners therefore resources were pooled for the Horse Creek ponds. In total, 5 off channel ponds were completed as part of this project.

Project Benefit    


This project benefits Coho, Chinook and Steelhead by increasing the quality and availability of rearing habitat in Seiad Creek and Horse Creek. Seiad Creek and Horse Creek are well documented for their consistent use for rearing and spawning of Coho Salmon which makes this project even more important due to their endangered status.
