USACE Calls for Comments on Lower Willamette River

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District is seeking public comment on the draft Lower Willamette River Ecosystem Restoration Project, Feasibility Study and Integrated Environmental Assessment (draft FS/EA).

The draft FS/EA addresses the impacts associated with implementation of ecosystem restoration actions along the lower Willamette River, as well as in Tryon Creek and Columbia Slough in Multnomah County, Oregon.

The proposed action would restore five sites by implementing a combination of measures, which include installing large wood, replanting riparian vegetation, removing invasive species, increasing floodplain connectivity and reconnecting side channels, alcoves, and backwater habitats, and removing fish barriers to facilitate access to upstream spawning and rearing habitats.

At the end of the public comment period, the Corps will consider all comments received by close of business on the expiration date of this public notice and make a determination of significance of impacts resulting from the proposed action.
