DESCRIPTION
To change in confinement near RS 25 Near term actions to prevent further channel incision and increase channel complexity should focus on wood placement to replace the functions previously provided by large trees recruited to the channel. Concurrent efforts should be made to work with willing landowners to enhance habitat, negotiate conservation easements, and/or acquire property in the stream corridor to enable removal of floodplain constraints such as bank protection and houses from floodplain and replant the riparian forest which has been cleared along much of the left bank.
