Section 7. Abstract


The CTUIR Grande Ronde Subbasin Watershed Restoration Project (5507000) is an ongoing, multiple cooperator/partner effort with key objectives of restoring and enhancing water quality, instream structural diversity, floodplain/geomorphological functions, riparian/wetland quality and quantity, and rearing and spawning habitat for anadromous fish including threatened Snake River Spring chinook salmon and summer steelhead trout. Key NPPC FWP Measures addresss include: 7.6B.3; 7.6B.4; 7.6C.5; 7.7; 7.8A.5. The CTUIR propose to focus FY98 and 99 NPPC funding on the ongoing restoration efforts on the McCoy Meadow Ranch and continue detailed designs and preparations for project construction on the Mainstem Upper Grande Ronde Enhancement project involving the Stone and Kunha Ranches in the middle Upper Grande Ronde subbasin. Methods involve state-of-art bioengineering techniques that embrace the scientific principles of watershed and floodplain morphological processes. The two project areas considered in this proposal exhibit severe instability primarily as a result of past land use practices such are agriculture, ranching, channelization, and transportation system development. Project development and implementation is phased in over a period of an estimated 3-4 years on the McCoy Creek Ranch and 2-3 years on the Mainstem Grande Ronde Enhancement Project. Expected outcomes include: increased geomorphic stability and more natural channel forming/maintenance process; increased instream habitat and structural diversity including approximately 3 miles of reestablished stream channel/holding, rearing, and spawning habitat in McCoy, McIntyre, and Meadow Creeks, restoration of 300-500 acres of mid-montane wetland habitat, and enhanced holding and rearing habitat along approximately 10 miles of mainstem Upper Grande Ronde River. Benefits such as increased channel length and enhanced structural additions will be, and have been, realized immediately following construction. Benefits such as reestablishing riparian and wetland habitats will likely require over a decade to become fully realized. Monitoring and evaluation includes groundwater, fish habitat and populations survey/sampling, and photo point monitoring. An extensive water quality monitoring network is maintained by ODEQ and includes temperature and chemistry as well as macroinvertebrate community monitoring. Additional M&E includes coordination with ongoing and planned research by Oregon State University.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose after revision
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
(previously 9128) The original proposal is not clear. Technical justification is inadequate and objectives and planned activities are vague. The description of monitoring is inadequate, and the proposal lacks criteria with which to measure the project’s success. The revised proposal did a better job detailing the location of the project but otherwise did not improve significantly from the original.
