  • 1. John Konovsky Squaxin Island Tribe
  • 2. Survey of South Sound Biological Recovery Actions <ul><li>Goldsborough Creek & Finfish </li></ul><ul><li>Oakland Bay & Shellfish </li></ul><ul><li>Deschutes River—Coho, CWA Activities, Instream Flows </li></ul><ul><li>SS Salmonid Survival & Marine Shorelines </li></ul>
  • 3. Greater Oakland Bay Watershed Dam
  • 4. Wetlands & Canyons
  • 5. Goldsborough Creek & Dam Removal <ul><li>Dam removed in September 2001 </li></ul><ul><li>> 25 miles of stream and tributary habitat opened </li></ul><ul><li>2003 outmigrants represent first coho production post-dam </li></ul><ul><li>Forthcoming habitat improvements include improving channel morphology and floodplain connections </li></ul>
  • 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 <ul><li>Primary sources : septics & </li></ul><ul><li>livestock (not WWTP) </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary source : sediment </li></ul><ul><li>Summer critical period </li></ul><ul><li>Lingering pollution—very slow </li></ul><ul><li>turnover of water </li></ul>
  • 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 <ul><li>Sound/Ocean Survival </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Extinction is likely in 2 of 3 cycle lines unless sound/ocean survival increases from 2 ½ % to 4 % </li></ul></ul><ul><li>______________ </li></ul><ul><li>Winter floods </li></ul><ul><li>Fine sediments </li></ul><ul><li>Summer water temperatures </li></ul><ul><li>LWD </li></ul>
  • 24. Deschutes River TMDL <ul><li>More riparian vegetation important, but not sufficient to meet WQS </li></ul><ul><li>Improvements to channel morphology also necessary </li></ul><ul><li>Most sensitive reach is upstream of Vail </li></ul><ul><li>Overall 25% of fine sediment is from anthropogenic sources, but its 50% in the upper watershed </li></ul><ul><li>Summer base flows have decreased by 5 cfs at Rainier </li></ul><ul><li>Nutrients from Deschutes River an issue in Capitol Lake/Budd Inlet </li></ul>
  • 25. Deschutes River Spring Base Flow
  • 26.  
  • 27. Salmonid Survival & Marine Shoreline <ul><li>North & Central Sound salmonids visit SS each summer before heading to the ocean </li></ul><ul><li>Most smolts originating in SS streams do not make it past Tacoma Narrows </li></ul><ul><li>Disruption of sediment transport is likely enemy #1 </li></ul>
  • 28. Challenges to South Sound Biological Recovery <ul><li>Policy priority has been marine shoreline, not upland watersheds </li></ul><ul><li>We have lists of priority restoration projects for most basins without willing landowners </li></ul><ul><li>We have a backlog acquisition/easement projects with willing landowners </li></ul><ul><li>Some but not enough money is available </li></ul><ul><li>No one really wants to tackle stormwater, impervious surfaces and forest cover from a landscape perspective </li></ul><ul><li>No one wants to tackle water shortages </li></ul>
  • 29. How can you help? <ul><li>Support your local land trust to permanently protect the best of the best </li></ul><ul><li>Help identify “friendly intermediaries” to advocate for habitat restoration </li></ul><ul><li>Support state and federal funding </li></ul>
