The purpose of the project is to consider restoration alternatives and create a preliminary design that will restore fish access to one mile of stream in the upper Dickerson Creek watershed, install woody material to increase habitat complexity, aggrade the stream channel, and improve floodplain connectivity. The project would be designed to meet requirements of Manual 18 Appendices D-1 and D-2.Approximately 750 ft. of Dickerson Creek flows through the Carpenter, Fleming, and Ruiz parcels and restoration design is proposed for approximately 2.5 acres of riparian and floodplain area. The project will benefit wild Steelhead, Coho, Chum, and Cut-throat spawning and rearing habitat. Dickerson Creek is a tributary to Chico Creek, which is one of the highest priority salmon streams in Kitsap County identified by the West Sound Lead Entity and Suquamish Tribe. Prior 2007 log weirs were installed to improve fish passage and maintain grade, however, erosion and flooding washed out the weirs and caused three 33% fish barriers, located on the Carpenter property. These barriers limit fish access to approximately one mile of high quality spawning and rearing habitat. The design will also address removing roadbed fill in the floodplain and look at developing side channel habitat. A noxious weed removal and planting plan will be developed. This project addresses actions D2 and D3 in the Chico Creek Watershed Assessment for the Identification of Protection and Restoration Actions (2014).
