Reach C Westport Slough - Karamanos

This project investigates restoration alternatives for creating off-channel habitat at a 90-acre site near the confluence of Westport Slough and the Columbia River at Columbia River mile 43.  The site has been significantly altered by past dredge fill andagricultural practices that have eliminated the majority of the native plant community and juvenile salmonid habitat.  Restoration approaches include restoring natural site topography, creating a tidal channel network, creating emergent tidal wetland, enhancing existing habitat, and restoring full-site native vegetation.
