Description    


The project will result in a final design plan to create off-channel winter rearing habitat and refugia for juvenile salmonids in Freshwater Creek. The site will be assessed and restoration design plans will be developed to construct a self-maintaining off-channel pond.

Project Benefit    


The design plans for an off-channel pond on Freshwater Creek will create high-quality winter rearing and refugia habitat for juvenile salmonids. Freshwater Creek has been highly impacted by anthropogenic activities for over a 100 years thus significantly reducing the availability of critical off-channel habitat for salmonid species. The proposed design plans for an off-channel pond will increase the survival rates of juvenile salmonids during high winter discharges in the main channel.
