Salmon River “Boat Basin” Restoration Project

The Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council and Siuslaw National Forest will begin implementing the seventh project in an award-winning series of restoration projects in the Salmon River estuary starting July 14.

The project site is located approximately one mile west of Highway 101 on the north side of the Salmon River estuary in north Lincoln County. A 70 ft x 630 ft artificial L-shaped waterway was excavated in the 1960s and was intended to serve as a boat basin. The development cut off Mink Creek, altered hydrology of the area, and reduced habitat for juvenile salmon. The 2014 restoration project will reestablish hydrologic function, restore tidal marsh, and enhance juvenile salmon habitat.

Approximately 7,800 cubic yards of manmade berm will be removed. Most of the removed berm material will be used to fill in portions of the artificial waterway. The remaining berm materials will be placed in an upland area of the site.

Mink Creek will be reconnected to the Salmon River by reconstructing a channel along its historical path. Traffic on North Three Rocks Road is not expected to be significantly impacted during project implementation.

Project partners expect to break ground by July 14, 2014 and complete the project by approximately mid-August.
