NEPA #: OR-105-03-05  Environmental Assessment
Document Publish Date: 4/07/2004
Summary: The purpose of the project would be restoration of access to spawning and rearing habitat in Martin Creek for resident and anadromous salmonids, creation of additional habitat, and enhancement of existing habitat. This would be accomplished by the replacement of a culvert that blocks most fish passage, and the addition of large wood and boulder structures to the stream channel. The structures would increase deposition and scour adjacent to the structures, allowing for the formation of deep pool and off channel habitat. This habitat would provide juvenile fish with slow-water rearing areas and deep, residual pool habitat during low flow periods.
