Transcript

  • 1. John Konovsky Squaxin Island Tribe
  • 2. Survey of South Sound Biological Recovery Actions
    • Goldsborough Creek & Finfish
    • Oakland Bay & Shellfish
    • Deschutes River—Coho, CWA Activities, Instream Flows
    • SS Salmonid Survival & Marine Shorelines
  • 3. Greater Oakland Bay Watershed Dam
  • 4. Wetlands & Canyons
  • 5. Goldsborough Creek & Dam Removal
    • Dam removed in September 2001
    • > 25 miles of stream and tributary habitat opened
    • 2003 outmigrants represent first coho production post-dam
    • Forthcoming habitat improvements include improving channel morphology and floodplain connections
  • 6.  
  • 7.  
  • 8.  
  • 9.  
  • 10. Pre-dam Post-dam
  • 11. LWD
  • 12. Shellfish & Water Quality in Oakland Bay
  • 13. Tribal Harvest Commercial Harvest Manila Clams ~3 Million lbs/yr Oysters ~2 Million/yr >$10M/yr
  • 14.  
  • 15. Water Quality Issues
    • Primary sources : septics &
    • livestock (not WWTP)
    • Secondary source : sediment
    • Summer critical period
    • Lingering pollution—very slow
    • turnover of water
  • 16.  
  • 17. r 2 = 0.71
  • 18. DOH 614 Mean FC Level Matrix (DOH data May 02-Jun 06) Wind Direction (P = 0.8) Wind Speed (P = 0.04) 14 cfu/100 ml (5 samples) 72 cfu/100 ml (27 samples)  5 MPH 7 cfu/100 ml (22 samples) 20 cfu/100 ml (11 samples) < 5 MPH Other SW ¼ (180-270 o )
  • 19. Twin River Ranch Acquisition
  • 20. Deschutes Watershed
  • 21. Deschutes River
  • 22. Huckleberry Creek
  • 23. Deschutes River Coho Model
    • Sound/Ocean Survival
      • Extinction is likely in 2 of 3 cycle lines unless sound/ocean survival increases from 2 ½ % to 4 %
    • ______________
    • Winter floods
    • Fine sediments
    • Summer water temperatures
    • LWD
  • 24. Deschutes River TMDL
    • More riparian vegetation important, but not sufficient to meet WQS
    • Improvements to channel morphology also necessary
    • Most sensitive reach is upstream of Vail
    • Overall 25% of fine sediment is from anthropogenic sources, but its 50% in the upper watershed
    • Summer base flows have decreased by 5 cfs at Rainier
    • Nutrients from Deschutes River an issue in Capitol Lake/Budd Inlet
  • 25. Deschutes River Spring Base Flow
  • 26.  
  • 27. Salmonid Survival & Marine Shoreline
    • North & Central Sound salmonids visit SS each summer before heading to the ocean
    • Most smolts originating in SS streams do not make it past Tacoma Narrows
    • Disruption of sediment transport is likely enemy #1
  • 28. Challenges to South Sound Biological Recovery
    • Policy priority has been marine shoreline, not upland watersheds
    • We have lists of priority restoration projects for most basins without willing landowners
    • We have a backlog acquisition/easement projects with willing landowners
    • Some but not enough money is available
    • No one really wants to tackle stormwater, impervious surfaces and forest cover from a landscape perspective
    • No one wants to tackle water shortages
  • 29. How can you help?
    • Support your local land trust to permanently protect the best of the best
    • Help identify “friendly intermediaries” to advocate for habitat restoration
    • Support state and federal funding
