Large Woody Debris Collection

Over the past year CCFEG has been working with the local Public Utility Districts (PUDs), operators of the Columbia main-stem dams, and exploring uses for woody debris that collects at their facilities. The presence of large wood in salmon streams helps form and maintain habitat complexity, high nutrient values, and vital cover for migrating and holding fish.  CCFEG's work with the PUD should ensure that a large amount of this material is available for future restoration projects.
