Document Description
The Dry Creek Habitat Enhancement Miles 2-6 project would implement habitat enhancement projects totaling up to a total distance of five miles od Dry Creek. The purpose of the project is to improve habitat conditions for endangered coho salmon and threatened steelhead which occur in Dry Creek. The project would include combinations of pool and riffle enhancements; off channel backwater and alcove enhancements and/or creation; side channel enhancements and/or creation; and enhancement and stabilization of streambanks. For example, pools may be enhanced with large woody debris to improve riparian cover and shelter for coho and steelhead. Enhancements of riffles may include expanding existing riffles or constructing new riffles in appropriate locations, which may enhance pools by slowing the velocity of the water. Streambank enhancements may address chronic erosion in critical locations and provide additional riparian cover along the channel margins. Vegetation management is expected to occur annually for the first few years after implementation and then on a three-to-five year recurring basis in order to maintain the desired vegetation species and densities in the project area.
