Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The goal of this project is to protect and restore pool and floodplain habitat in the McKenzie Watershed. The Council has prioritized one property for immediate acquisition: Channel and pool habitats were created on the 20-acre Flinstone property during the 1996 flood event when a dike was breached and the active channel moved into the active rock quarry. The property owner is proposing to restore the dike, and acquisition provides an opportunity to prevent loss of this pool habitat. This property currently provides high-quality pool habitat for resident fish and rearing habitat for spring chinook salmon. Wildlife values include habitat for western pond turtles and waterfowl. Protecting and restoring the area will allow movement of the active channel through the flood plain. In addition, this property is adjacent to the Eugene Water & Electric Board?s (EWEB) Walterville Canal fish passage channel; public ownership will provide improved maintenance of the channel to aid in passage of spring chinook salmon. Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) habitat mitigation funds will be used in combination with BPA funding to purchase the site. A restoration and operations maintenance plan will be completed for each site. A monitoring plan will be developed and implemented to evaluate habitat/population protection and restoration success. All restoration, monitoring, and ongoing operations will be implemented through resources and personnel contributed by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and EWEB. The land acquisition portion of the project will be completed in FY 1999.
