Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Reduce the amount of actively eroding streambank, increase channel roughness, and provide edge cover for anadromous and resident juvenile and adult salmonids. a. Stabilize actively eroding streambanks using a variety of bioengineering techniques, including; live stakes, fascines, brushmattresses, live cribwalls, branchpacking, and protecting banks with logs and root wads.
2. Increase vegetative diversity. a. Use cuttings and rooted stock which will provide the greatest diversity at each site.

Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: The streambank stabilization structures using live cuttings need to be implemented immediately after the snowpack melts off while the cuttings are still dormant. If there is a heavy snowpack, the project may not be able to be started until May, instead of March or April.

Section 7. Abstract


Monitoring spawning ravel fine sediment levels, since 1985, has shown that fine sediment levels are high in the Little Naches River, with fine sediment, <1.0 mm in diameter, consistently making up 15 to 20 % of the spawning gravel. A major source of fine sediment which has been identified is streambank erosion associated with dispersed campsites. The project proposal is to mitigate losses of streambank vegetation in kind by restoring the streambanks which have been degraded by dispersed recreation. This project proposes to improve anadromous fish habitat quality, by restoring degraded streambanks using a variety of bioengineering techniques. The project would consist of restoring approximately 1600 feet of streambank spread out over seven sites. Work at these sites will consist of a variety of bioengineering techniques which incorporate logs, cuttings, and rooted stock. This project is consistent with 7.6 Habitat Goal in the sense that it improves the productivity of salmon and steelhead habitat critical to the recovery of the weak spring chinook and summer steelhead stocks in the Little Naches River.
