Yakama Nation Twisp Horseshoe Project, SEPA 2017-1

Threshold SEPA Determination

Project Summary

The Yakama Nation is proposing a restoration project approximately 9 miles west of Twisp, WA at 913B Twisp River Road.  The primary goals of this project include increasing off channel connectivity and installing large wood structures in the main channel and side channel to improve habitat conditions for steelhead, spring Chinook and bull trout.  The side channel will be created by select excavation and levee/riprap augmentation. A bottomless culvert will be placed within the existing levee/riprap area to preserve private trail access to the river. The restored side channel will create 532 linear feet of year round salmonid rearing habitat. The restored habitat will provide improved foraging and cover opportunities, flood refuge and thermal refuge for rearing salmonids. All disturbed soils will be de-compacted and seeded with a native grass seed mix, then mulched.  The site will be monitored and managed for vegetation establishment and weed control for three to five years.

Project Location: The project is on parcels 9800650012, 9800650013, Township 33 North, Range 20 E.W.M. in Section 11, approximately 9 miles westerly of the Town of Twisp, WA.
