Project Goals and Objectives

The project is located on the North Fork of Butte Creek, approximately nine miles from the mouth. It is approximately 12.8 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. This project implemented various floodplain connection actions to create pool habitat and extend perennial flow. A riparian fence currently protects the reach. Project partners include OWEB, ODFW, and NRCS.

Structure Construction Elements

The BDAs and PALS were constructed by utilizing the Low-Tech Process-Based Restoration Design Manual.
