Description    


The goal of this Project is to restore salmonid habitat and accelerate fisheries recovery by permanently removing several abandoned roads that are aligned through the riparian zone adjacent to Bear Creek. The intent is to treat a total of 32 specific sediment source features on 5.03 miles of road including 18 stream crossings, 12 landslide fill failures, one ditch relief culvert, and one bank erosion site. Decommissioning will take place on 3.5 miles of road and will include 13 stream crossings. Upgrading will take place on 1.53 miles of road and will include five (5) stream crossings.

Project Benefit    


Implementing these site-specific erosion control measures, will save approximately 6,555 cubic yards of potential sediment from delivering to Bear Creek and improve instream habitat conditions for spawning and rearing salmonids.
