Section 7. Abstract


The Roza-Sunnyside Board of Joint Control is developing a long-range plan to increase salmon , steelhead and Chinook populations by improving water-quality by reducing sedimentation and temperature of the return flow water. Water-quality improvements will be accomplished by the incorporation of buffer strips along the drainage waterways that will restore, enhance, and protect the drains under the jurisdiction of the RSBOJC. The improvements will decrease sedimentation due to fewer disturbances in the drain by cattle and farming practices, thus enhancing fish and wildlife habitat. The RSBOJC will be responsible for monitoring and evaluating the project.
