Section 7. Abstract


Chumstick Creek is a 3rd order stream, which drains a 78 square mile sub-basin of the Wenatchee River watershed. In 1994, Chumstick Creek was ranked second to Mission Creek as contributing to current and future potential water quality degradation in the Wenatchee River watershed (Hines, 1994). The stream once supported healthy populations of chinook, steelhead and bull trout, however access to Chumstick Creek is now limited due to 23 culverts that are migrational barriers particularly at low flows (Bugert and Bambrick, 1996). Several of these sites were affected by the 1995-1996 floods and the high water run off of 1997. Most of these site are associated with problem culverts. The over all goal of this project is to enhance and improve salmonid migration throughout the Chumstick drainage. In addition to replacing the 23 identified culverts, 10 to 15 sites will be enhanced by improving in-stream habitat and riparian vegetation. All in-stream work will be completed by November 1999. All riparian vegetation will be completed by May of 2000. This project in cooperation with the point source pollution project and the improvement of the large culvert on Highway 209, will restore the health of the watershed and provide 78 square miles of habitat for anadromous and resident fish. In addition to the habitat for fish, this project will provide improved habitat for waterfowl, bald eagles, spotted owls, and grey wolves. Monitoring sites including water quality, cross section, sediment, habitat and photo points will be set up throughout the watershed.
