Biological Outcomes of this project: This project is intended to affect the biotic/abiotic interactions that support aquatic habitat, specifically, by reducing erosion, increasing channel/floodplain interactions, increasing sediment trapping, and improving vigor of riparian vegetative communities. The ultimate goal is recovery of the water storage and retention characteristics of the watershed and reestablishment of runoff characteristics closer to the historic norm. The expected biological outcome is improved aquatic habitat both in the project area and in spawning/rearing areas below.
Biological Data: Currently, the Yakama Nation has two sources of information to measure biological outcomes resulting from this project. First, redd counts have been intermittently conducted in the upper Toppenish and Simcoe Watersheds since 1988. The second source is electrofishing data which has been collected intermittently since the late 1970's. These data collection efforts will be continued by another project within the Yakama Nation Fisheries Program.
