With anticipation that the 2017 Washington State Legislature will approve a state capital budget, it is expected that there will be funding for the 2017 to 2019 biennium to be used towards fish barrier removal projects consistent with the Chehalis Basin Strategy (www.chehalisbasinstrategy.com).
This Call for Proposals solicits fish barrier correction projects in Watershed Resource Inventory Areas (WRIAs) 22 and 23 during 2018-2019. The purpose of ASRP Barrier Project funding is to restore habitat functions within WRIAs 22 and 23 to maintain or increase the abundance and diversity of native salmonids. Projects that benefit other “target” aquatic species will receive additional points.
Applications are due December 13, 2017.
