Carbon River Floodplain Connection Right Bank
The purpose of the project is to connect Carbon River main channel flows to the right bank side (between river miles 3.9 and 4.2) via an existing right bank floodplain side channel. The right bank floodplain side channel will be engaged and connected by constructing Engineered Log Jams (ELJ) in the main stem channel. The targeted range of flows for reconnection are 5-year and 2-year recurrence intervals or less, depending on main stem channel conditions at any given time frame. The project stems from, is necessitated by, and is identified in the Pierce County draft Habitat Conservation Plan. The project is currently in progress and at the feasibility conceptual design phase.
