Quillayute River Restoration - Reach 3

Olympic National Park » Quillayute River Restoration - Reach 3 » Document List

This EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with constructing large wood structures and high-flow pilot channels on the banks and floodplain of the Quillayute River between river mile 1.7 and 2.9. The project would redirect river flows and reduce the potential for an avulsion from the Quillayute River, protect streambanks from erosion at a culturally important site, improve salmonid habitat for both juveniles and adults, address low-flow fish passage conditions, and provide sustainable and improved access to the river for tribal fishermen and fish buyers.

The project would involve material hauling (e.g., logs, gravel, rock), floodplain excavation, large wood structure construction, gravel parking lot improvements, and site restoration. The construction would employ best management practices to ensure the protection of protected resources.

The document will open for public comment Monday, July 19 through Sunday, August 22. Click on the "Open for Comment" button on the left side of the screen and then follow the prompts to provide your comment.
