DESCRIPTION
This action will remove artificial constraints to channel migration and reconnect floodplain areas. Property in the stream corridor should be dedicated for maintenance of habitat-forming processes by working with willing landowners and negotiation of conservation easement and/or land acquisition. Fill materials to be removed include the levee on the Kitsap Golf & Country Club property and the infrastructure associated with the housing development along Shadden Lane NW. Instream habitat conditions will be addressed through strategic wood placements that will increase abundance of pool habitats, provide cover, increase channel complexity, and increase hydraulic roughness. Recent development along Shadden Lane NW will pose significant challenges to restoration of riparian processes and instream habitat conditions through this segment because infrastructure has been placed directly on top of the pre-incision floodplain surface. As such, negotiation and coordination with property owners will be required. Future wood recruitment and restoration of channel migration processes may require future modification to the pedestrian bridge on the Kitsap Golf & Country Club property.
