DESCRIPTION
The North Fork/Middle Fork early Chinook population is considered essential for ESU recovery, but population productivity is substantially less than that needed to sustain and recover the population. A recent assessment and restoration planning report identified limiting habitat factors and causes of habitat degradation and recommended specific restoration strategies by reach. The Wildcat reach of the North Fork Nooksack River (RM 53.3-54.8) is one of two project reaches among 14 reaches that scored highest in terms of restoration potential in the North Fork Nooksack River. This project will advance the development of instream projects throughout the Wildcat Reach that will restore historic channel planform, habitat diversity, and habitat functions, including stable spawning and rearing habitats for NF/MF Nooksack early chinook. Specific tasks completed include: (1) feasibility study, including refinement of limiting factors and reach-specific objectives, identification and evaluation of various alternatives, landowner outreach, and selection and staging of the preferred alternative; (2) preliminary (30%) design for the reach-scale preferred alternative, including flood risk assessment, design report, and cost estimates; and (3) final design and premits for the 1st project phase. Potential treatments range from stabilization/augmentation of existing wood accumulations to historic-scale engineered log jams, although existing wood loading in the reach is low.
