Section 7. Abstract


The Methow River subbasin is an important stronghold in the Columbia River Basin and retains large, continuous blocks of high quality aquatic habitat that have the ability to support multiple anadromous species. Despite high quality habitat, anadromous fish stocks have substantially decreased due to cumulative impacts. However, opportunity exists to improve adult and juvenile survival and contribute to production increases in the Basin. Improving survival will require a systematic and coordinated approach through a collaborative Methow Valley effort of public and private entities. The project goal is to identify and prioritize key habitat areas and watershed processes for protection and restoration. We propose to develop an integrated protection and restoration strategy for the Methow basin. Objectives include: (1) collect and synthesize existing watershed assessments, plans and other aquatic and terrestrial information and identify gaps; (2) identify key areas for protection and develop restoration priorities; (3) conduct assessments in areas that lack appropriate data; (4) coordinate and schedule future protection and restoration efforts; and (5) establish baseline and effectiveness monitoring network. In the last few years, PWI has successfully applied the proposed method to watersheds in the upper basin. This method uses reconstruction of watershed functioning through analyzing changes in geomorphic, hydrologic and biological elements. By 2001, the expected outcomes are a basin protection and restoration strategy that identifies: (1) key watersheds for protection, (2) key areas for restoration, (3) restoration project costs and schedules, (4) funding sources; and (5) strategies for developing a Watershed Management Council to coordinate projects.
