The council support grant provided operating capacity support for MisCoasts WC which is an umbrella council representing the Yaquina Group and the Siletz Watershed Council, which are Basin Planning Teams, and Salmon-Drift, and Alsea Watershed Councils. Key issues identified by the council included water quality and quantity, habitat restoration, and resource management issues.

Project Benefit    

Most of the MidCoast Watershed council (MCWC) area streams are Oregon Coast (OC) Coho Salmon habitat and the MCWC concentrates much of its efforts on improving this habitat. The MCWC works with multiple partners to improve and conserve estuary habitat a key issue for OC Chinook. The MCWC’s rapid bio-assessment snorkel surveys are an important tool in understanding the current status of Coho and other salmonids. The MCWC is involved with restoration planning for the OC Coho.

          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.
