DESCRIPTION
From RM 13.3 to RM 13.8, Nason Creek was re-located into an artificial channel in the late 1950's when the BNSF railroad was built. The creek flowed east between two constructed levees that protected the CPUD powerlines to the north and the BNSF railroad to the south. There was no spawning for spring Chinook or steelhead within the project area, despite spawning being present just upstream and downstream of the project area. The existing bed was incised due to channelization and Nason Creek was disconnected from the adjacent 30 acre floodplain wetland to the north. This project relocated Public Utility power lines out of the floodplain and removed ~0.5 mile of levee then re-located 0.5 miles of straightened mainstem into a reconstructed meander alignment and reconnected 27 acres of floodplain. The primary goal of the project was to improve and increase salmonid habitat in this important stretch of Nason Creek to increase the abundance and productivity of ESA-listed UCR spring Chinook salmon and UCR steelhead. This project addressed the #1 ecological concern identified in the RTT Upper Columbia Biological Strategy by enhancing peripheral and transitional habitats in the #1 priority area in the Wenatchee Basin (Nason Creek). This project will addressed the #2 ecological concern in Nason Creek by improving in-stream complexity through the addition of large wood (332 pieces).
