The Bonneville Power Administration invites you to attend an open house to discuss and comment on the Draft Environmental Assessment for the proposed Steigerwald Floodplain Restoration Project. BPA is proposing to fund the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership’s proposal to restore floodplain connectivity to the Columbia River within the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Clark County, Wash. The Refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The project would help improve water quality and habitat to benefit steelhead and cutthroat trout; Chinook, coho, and chum salmon; and Pacific and western brook lamprey. The project would involve reconnecting Gibbons Creek to the Columbia River by breaching a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ levee; removing a diversion structure, fish ladder, elevated channel, and water control structure; raising Washington State Highway 14; constructing a setback levee; enhancing approximately two miles of wetland channels; and re-establishing the site’s riparian forest. The draft environmental assessment discusses the environmental effects expected from project construction and site restoration. February 12, 2018 6:00 – 8:00 pm Port of Camas-Washougal 24 South ‘A’ Street Washougal, WA 98671
