  • Greetings, My name is Kimberlie Gridley. I am a project manager for the SPSSEG. Thank you so much for joining us here this evening. I am going to take a few moments to tell you a bit about our group and some the projects we are currently working on.
  • We are one of 14 Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups through Washington State formed by a mandate from the legislature in 1989. Our group was formed soon after in 1991. Since that time we have grown to include a board of 9 directors, 4 full time and 2 part-time staff members. Our newly revised mission as stated here is:
  • Located near Nisqually Refuge Historically a perennial stream and a pocket estuary with unimpeded tidal movement Estuary turned to a pond by parking lot, stream was piped, no fish access Removal of parking lot fill and installation of box culvert restored tides to pocket estuary and full stream access Soft armoring using wood and native plants
  • Big Cove is located on Totten Inlet, west of Steamboat Island Road. Removed an earthen dam, shoreline armoring and over 2,000 CY of fill which blocked the pocket estuary and stream. Restored the estuary for fish, shore birds, other wildlife and planted native vegetation along the tidal edge.
  • Greenwater is a Tributary to the upper White River and is one of the primary producers of White River Spring Chinook, Coho and steelhead. The river has suffered from intense logging practices as evidenced by these aerial photos from 1956 and 1970. Note the location of the forest road bisecting the floodplain.
  • Phase 1 installed 5 ELJs and removed 1/2mile of road. Phase 1 and 2 will install total of 16 ElJs and remove 3/4 mile of road to reconnect 80 acres of floodplain Activated side channels, recruit gravel????
  • Located near Eatonville Valley drained in 1900’s for agriculture, Ohop Creek moved to valley side and ditched Created faster water, incised channel, less in-stream habitat Floodplain converted to pasture crops and became devoid of forest canopy Approx. 1 mile of restored stream channel for salmonid rearing and feeding Floodplain approx. 60,000 Plants over 2 years LWD placement
  • Elbow lake creek tributary to Powell Creek near Yelm. Removed a barrier culvert and was the 4 th culvert to be removed in a suite of projects to restore fish access with Powell Creek.
  • South Sound Group coordinated several riparian plantings at a number of restoration sites In Mason, Thurston and Pierce Counties. With assistance from volunteers, landowners, and organizations such as the Washington Conservation Corps We were able to establish native vegetation along stream and marine corridors
  • Goldsborough Creek is located near Shelton and is the primary producer of Coho salmon in Deep South Sound The success of the watershed was only possible after a full spanning dam was removed in 2001, allowing fish access to the upper watershed However, barrier culverts, high flood flows and other limiting factors still affect fish habitat. This comprehensive development campaign allowed SPSSEG to identify and develop 17 possible fish habitat projects. A number of these projects have already received funding for further design and implementation including a grant obtained from the EPA by the Squaxin Island Tribe
  • Identified 65 potential projects and developed 6 projects to conceptual design in the Key Peninsula, Gig Harbor and Islands portion of WRIA 15.
