DESCRIPTION
The North Yakima Conservation District proposes to develop a preliminary design for a stream and floodplain restoration project on Ahtanum Creek. Upon application award, a local Technical Working Group will be formed to identify and prioritize necessary steps to improve habitat for steelhead, Chinook, Coho, and Bull trout recovery in this area. This group of local biologists, scientists, and natural resource professionals will represent a variety of agencies and expertise in the basin. These recovery steps will be incorporated into a preliminary design that will provide a foundation and template for future project implementation and construction along Ahtanum Creek. This reach of Ahtanum Creek lacks riparian and floodplain function. Riparian condition is poor/fair. Channel incision and bank erosion have affected the quality of salmonid spawning habitat. This is a unique opportunity in which several landowners/operators (tribal and private) and properties will be combined under one design. A holistic approach to Ahtanum Creek can be accomplished since both sides of the stream will be included. This area encompasses approximately 8,600 feet of stream length, and 25 plus acres of floodplain.
