Project: Post Fire Forest Management and Sediment Reduction for Coho Recovery

Description: The Project will treat 31 identified sites on 3.23 miles of hydrologically connected roads for erosion control and prevention. The treatments include replacing culverts, outsloping the roads, installing rolling dips and other sediment reduction methods. These treatments will have an estimated reduction of 1,200 cubic yards of episodic sediment delivery and 2,025 cubic yards of chronic sediment delivery for a total of 3,225 cubic yards of total sediment delivery prevention to Mark West Creek. Forest management treatment consists of removing dead and dying debris and piling slash to burn on slopes less than 35% or, lop and scatter slash on slopes greater than 35%. Old cattle fences will be removed to enhance wildlife movement. The treatment area encompasses 164.25 acres.
