Catherine Creek 44 Phase 4 - Shoemaker/Kinsley

  • GRMW ID: 1928
  • Fiscal Year: 2016

This Project, phase IV of Catherine Creek (CC-44) Fish Habitat and Restoration Project, located approximately 3 miles Southwest of Union, Oregon (Tax lots 04S40E 2800 700, 04S40E 2800 800, 04S40E 2800 900) seeks to restore .56 miles of Catherine Creek, through the installation of large wood structures, revegetation of degraded stream banks, and long term project protection, specifically a 15 year exclusion easement. The project is located along Catherine Creek with the Atlas Biological Significant Reach (BSR) CCCC3b1 which is identified as a high priority BSR with Tier 1 (highest priority) actions. The property was channelized and confined valley left in the early 1940’s. The existing channel is homogenous, with minimal habitat and complexity. The lack of LWM significantly limits deep pool creation and available interstitial habitat utilized by juvenile salmonids. Additionally, segmented and poorly established riparian vegetation communities contribute to high summer water temperatures. This proposal seeks funding for the construction on the lower properties of Kinsley and Shoemaker (Parcels 1, and 2). Through streamlining engineering designs, refining site plans, and landowner input this proposal is now for significantly less than was previously stated in the original proposal (September 2013). The current cost estimate for these properties is $284,762.
