Project Goals and Objectives

The project is located on Thirtymile Creek, approximately nine miles from the mouth. It is approximately 8.5 miles southwest of Condon in Gilliam County. The major watershed issue for this reach is intermittent flow during the summer months. The reaches upstream and downstream have perennial flow, and this project aims to extend those wetted reaches.

Structure Construction Elements

This project will implement various floodplain connection actions to create pool habitat and extend perennial flow. A riparian fence currently protects the reach.
