Document Description
Will enhance streamflow in McKee Creek by raising the streambed through a series of log and boulder step pools in the main stem of McKee Creek and by utilizing check dam techniques above anadromy, in an intermittent side tributary. The project will result in the inundation of the inset floodplain during winter; increase groundwater recharge, storage, and corresponding instream flow, as well as create much needed rearing and foraging habitat for anadromous salmonids.
