Section 7. Abstract


Develops reference conditions from various Rosgen channel types to provide baseline data for stream restoration projects and provides a large data set for watershed assessments to determine stream habitat potential. The data will also help detect and characterize land use effects on aquatic habitats across different geologies and channel types which will help fishery managers prioritize stream restoration projects. The ultimate objective is to rebuild native fish stocks by providing a reference set of selected habitat parameters from which watershed restoration projects can be prioritized and then implemented, if need be, to restore the stream reach within the range of natural variability. The 1998 ISRP Review measure V-C.3.1 is specific to tying habitat projects to a watershed assessment. This project is integral to achieving this goal of the ISRP. It provides a baseline to help determine whether a restoration project should even take place based upon whether the stream reach is outside or within the range of natural variability. Data will be collected using the R1/R4 stream survey methodology and will be stored in the Rocky Mountain Research Station's Columbia River Basin Reach Information Database (CRBRID). The success of this project will be measured by the incorporation of the dataset into watershed assessements and stream restoration projects.
