Closing report for the Coastal stream improvement and rehabilitation program authorized by Chapter 527, Oregon laws, 1961 Public Deposited

http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/concern/technical_reports/1831cq190

This publication describes stream improvement efforts in coastal streams in the early 1960s. It was written during the heyday of the “stream clearance” policy, in which large woody debris, mostly in the form of logjams, was removed from streams. Other projects included fishways, rearing ponds, culverts. Includes b+w “before” and “after” photographs of coastal stream projects.

Abstract or Summary
  • "The natural production of anadromous fish in many coastal streams has been seriously reduced by pollution, dams, timber harvesting, siltation, and other such forces. Many miles of streams that could be in production are not available to anadromous fish because access is blocked by log jams or natural barriers such as falls. The Fish Commission of Oregon and the Oregon State Game Commission have continuing programs to rehabilitate streams, but much needed work has not been done because of insufficient funds. The importance of anadromous fish resources and their maintenance have caused local industry, resource-oriented groups, and individuals, as well as other state and federal government agencies, to actively support increased effort in stream improvement work...Legislative action reflected this support in 1961 when the House Committee on Fish and Game introduced a bill at the request of the Oregon Coast Association asking for $1,000,000 of general fund money to help anadromous fish runs in coastal streams south of the Columbia River...The law that established the program, and the significant aspects of program accomplishment, including solicitation of contributions, execution of agreements, construction, benefits derived, and suggestions for guiding those who may be involved in similar programs in the future, are summarized in the text that follows."
