Description    


The Cascadia Conservation Distric, on behalf of the Entiat WRIA Planning Unit (EWPU), implemented Phase I of a full ~1.2 RM reach restoration in the lower mainstem Entiat River. The Bridge-to-Bridge (B-to-B) reach (~RM 3.2 to RM 4.4) is the highest priority restoration area in WRIA 46. Past activities that altered the lower Entiat River included logging, dams, stream clearing, channelization, filling, and flood control protection works. Riparian vegetation has been removed by fire and development.

Funding for Phase 1 was used to: (a) restore ~1000 contiguous ft. of riparian vegetation to improve stream temperatures, bank condition, cover, nutrient inputs; (b) provide juvenile off-channel rearing habitat via rock/LWD placement in ~700 ft. irrigation ditch; (c) install 2 instream structures to direct flow to the off-channel habitat and restore resting pools in the lowest portion of the reach. A ditch outfall structure was also added.

The Bridge-to-Bridge effort addressed lack of off-channel rearing habitat, temperature extremes, and habitat simplicity It restored geomorphology, floodplain function, habitat complexity/diversity, off-channel habitat, and shading, benefiting adult and juvenile Chinook, steelhead, and coho. At the end of Phase 3, the reach was restored to its geomorphic potential (e.g. now 0.3 pools/mi, restored to 9 pools/mi). The EWPU supported this 3-phase project, developed via 10 years of planning. Actions proposed were based on geomorphic, biologic, hydrologic and thermal analyses.

Project Benefit    


The goal of the project is to improve instream morphology and habitat in salmon bearing streams. The objective of the project is to increase instream cover, spawning, and resting areas.
