Project: Umpqua Basin Tree Revetment Project 2006

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: none
Resource Area: Swiftwater
NEPA #: OR-104-06-04  Environmental Assessment
Document Publish Date: 6/12/2007
Summary: Douglas Soil and Water Conservation District (DSWCD) proposed the Umpqua Basin Tree Revetment Project for funding, because many streams in Douglas County have streambank erosion. This erosion has resulted in increased levels of sediment delivered and suspended or stirred up in the stream-flow. Existing riparian vegetation is sparse and does not provide enough root mass to support bank stability or stream canopy to provide shade. The Roseburg BLM District RAC recommended and Jay Carlson, Roseburg District Manager (DFO) approved the project in September 2005. The Bureau of Land Management is developing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation because the project is federally funded.
