DESCRIPTION
This project implements the preferred restoration alternative for Lower Canyon Creek, a tributary of the North Fork Nooksack River. Canyon Creek provides key tributary habitat for ESA listed chinoook salmon, bull trout, steelhead, and other salmonids and with 3.9 miles of habitat above the current partial fish barrier. The downstream 520' will be removed from a 2400' long levee that was installed to protect a sub-division and County roads following three damaging debris floods in 1989 and 1990. After levee installation, a partial barrier to salmonids developed at a bedrock notch that limits access to historic spawning and rearing habitats.
