This creek restoration project was performed within Abernathy Creek in Cowlitz County, WA. The work was being conducted by the Cowlitz Indian Tribe Natural Resources Department in an effort to improve salmon habitat. It was critical that the work be performed within the creek’s in-water work window which was August 1st–September 15th. AEC’s scope of work included excavation activities and placement of large wood habitat structures. Our crews first developed site access, established erosion control measures, tree salvage, and fish exclusion. Next, we supplied and installed rootwads, boulders, and large wood structures including logs, ballast, cable clips, and epoxy, and finally we replanted disturbed areas with seed.
