Project: Stouts Creek Instream Habitat Enhancement

Project Status: Project Under Implementation
Office Location: Roseburg
Resource Area: South River
NEPA #: OR-105-04-03  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 6/07/2006
Summary: It is the South River Field Manager's decision to authorize placement of logs for instream habitat enhancement in a one-quarter mile reach of Stouts Creek in Section 3, T. 31 S., R. 3 W., W.M. The logs will be provided from an off-site source. No felling or pulling of live trees will be involved. Field Office hydrology and fishery personnel have identified a deficiency of large woody debris resulting in: a reduction in pool complexity and volume; a lack of retention of gravel substrate; and reduced availability of spawning and rearing habitat for anadromous and resident salmonids. Placement of the logs will create four instream structures that will enhance habitat structure and complexity.
