Chehalis Basin Salmon Restoration and Preservation Strategy
The ultimate goal of the Chehalis Lead Entity is to help implement on-the-ground, community supported, salmon recovery projects in the Chehalis watershed. We do this by developing, planning and prioritizing salmon restoration and preservation projects that follow the guidance of the Chehalis Basin Strategy.

Each subwatershed in the Chehalis has different characteristics, and therefore different needs for recovering priority salmon stocks. These documents provide details on each sub-basin that will help Sponsors develop their project, and teach local residents about priorities for salmon recovery in their local stream.

Undersized and perched culverts are a major barrier to salmon migration in the Chehalis Watershed. A number of different agencies have inventoried and identified the culverts in the watershed. These culvert assessments, available below, give details on the culverts’ location and condition.
The data synthesized here can provide citizens and local, state and federal scientists and managers with a method to identify and prioritize habitat acquisition, restoration, and conservation projects within the Grays Harbor Estuary.
