Project Goals and Objectives

The project is located on Ferry Canyon, approximately five miles from the mouth. It is approximately 15 miles northwest 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 will implement 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 installed using the Low-Tech Process-Based Design Manual.
