Initially, Waterways was hired to evaluate restoration opportunities and constraints, identify restoration alternatives, estimate construction costs, and prepare a preliminary engineering design. The selected alternative focused on grading to enhance side channel connectivity, installation of log jams and placement of large wood in the floodplain. Following a successful OWEB grant application, Waterways completed permit-ready and bid-ready construction documents for the project and oversaw construction. The project was permitted through USFWS Partners programmatic. Funding was provided through OWEB, USFWS Partners Program, and Oregon DEQ.
