Section 7. Abstract


This project proposes to allocate an estimated 13.5-18 CFS of water to instream water rights in Crabtree Creek, a stream that supports spawning, rearing, and holding for native winter steelhead. Crabtree Creek is located in the South Santiam, a subbasin of the Upper Willamette. The NMFS has proposed the Upper Willamette ESU of steelhead for listing in February 1999 as threatened under the endangered species act. The proposed project, in Linn County, is located approximately 7 miles northeast of Lebanon and 15 miles east of Albany. Water would be conserved by piping the first three miles of the unlined Lacomb Irrigation District ditch from the intake to the hydroelectric plant. The ditch loses 76% of its water during the first 3.5 miles. Seventy-five percent of the conserved water would be allocated to the state for instream water rights to Crabtree Creek, helping to solve the problems of over allocation and elevated temperatures. Expected outcomes include extending the effective salmonid habitat further downstream, decreasing erosion from the ditch into Crabtree Creek, and improving conditions in Crabtree Creek to stabilize and strengthen the population of native winter steelhead. We are requesting $1,402,816 from the Bonneville Power Administration for piping materials, surveying, design, installation, and project coordination and management. The project will be completed in FY2000. The South Santiam Watershed Council will monitor temperature, turbidity, and other water quality parameters. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife conducts an annual index spawning survey for steelhead redds in Crabtree Creek.
