Short Description Enhance and restore degraded riparian and habitat conditions in the Little Naches River by revegetating eroding banks and unstable channels, restricting vehicular traffic in the floodplain, and enhancing habitat by placement of trees and boulders.

Biological Outcomes of this project: The restoration project is expected to substantially improve riparian and habitat conditions in the lower and middle reaches of the Little Naches. Revegetating sparse riparian areas should elevate canopy cover to moderate temperatures, increase large woody debris recruitment for habitat complexity, lessen bank erosion, provide additional bank and floodplain stability, and filtrate sediment-laden runoff. The amount of canopy cover, large woody debris and pool frequency, bank stability and quality of spawning gravels should be measurable in future years. Limiting vehicular activities in the floodplain will provide similar benefits for bank stability, sediment filtration and riparian revegetation. Placement of large woody debris and boulders in the channel will immediately improve habitat complexity for juvenile rearing, velocity refuge for fry and juvenile fish, adult holding, and spawning gravel retention.
Biological Data: Data is available from the completed Watershed Analyses, past monitoring by the USFS and Yakama Nation, and supplemental monitoring from the restoration project. The monitoring work has data relevant to conditions for canopy cover, stream temperature, large woody debris and pool frequency, spawning gravel quality, road conditions, timber harvest activities, slope stability, surface erosion and stream classification.

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $134,950
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $134,950
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 90,470
% change from forecast 49.2%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Projected costs for FY2001 budget have increased primarily due to two factors. First, staffing time has been increased in the budget to more accurately reflect the work load on this project. Additional staff time has been put toward this project than previously anticipated. The additional time had been provided by other Yakama Nation funding. Secondly, additional funds are needed to hire a second subcontractor for vegetative work. Initial plantings with hand labor have only been partially successful. Use of a subcontractor with specialized and mechanized equipment is expected to substantially increase the survival of plantings. The mechanized equipment should also be able to plant considerably more areas in a shorter period of time.


Reason for change in scope

The scope of work has not changed; just an adjustment in budgeting to more accurately reflect staff time and the addition of a second subcontractor to achieve greater results with revegetation work.
