Description    


This project funded a Watershed Council Coordinator for the Tillamook Bay Watershed Council which comprises 359,336 acres, includes six 5th-field watersheds, and has a population of 16,300. Limiting factors include habitat loss and simplification, water quality, erosion and sedimentation, and flooding. The council implemented restoration projects to address riparian restoration, instream habitat, and fish passage barriers. TThe TBWC coordinator continues to utilize watershed assessment and action plans to prioritize current and future restoration and monitoring projects.

Project Benefit    


The goal and purpose of the OWEB Council Support grant is to provide operating capacity support for the Tillamook Bay Watershed Council. Operating support includes the watershed council coordinator salary and benefits, rent, utilities, travel, training, supplies and materials. The Tillamook Bay Watershed provides 665 stream miles of habitat for fall and spring Chinook, coho, chum, and steelhead. Limiting factors in the watershed include lack of instream habitat due to lack of large woody debris, high stream temperatures due to a lack of native riparian vegetation, fish passage barriers, and invasive species. The council implements restoration projects to address riparian restoration, instream habitat, and fish passage barriers. The TBWC coordinator continues to utilize watershed assessment and action plans to prioritize current and future restoration and monitoring projects.

          Description of the Plan
          The Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds highlighted the key role watershed councils play in conducting basin assessments, understanding limiting factors, developing action plans, implementing restoration projects, and monitoring programs at the local level, as well as involving landowners. The Oregon Plan indicated that in order to provide effective leadership, watershed councils needed a stable infrastructure in the form of a paid council coordinator. The Oregon Plan noted that funding should be provided to support watershed council activities.
