Remedial activities were conducted on two adjoining sites on the upper mainstem of Open Bay Creek on Sept. 18/19, 2008. The objective was to stabilize sediments on and peripheral to an alluvial sediment fan created by an upper tributary on the mainstem of the creek in December, 2006. Open Bay Creek has, in the past 2 decades, demonstrated low production numbers of coho, this principally due to limited and poor quality spawning habitat resulting from large amounts of fine sediments that have been injected into the system.
The sediment control activities described in this summary were 2 of the 11 remedial prescriptions (#1 and #3) identified through the planning process described in the upcoming Assessments and Prescriptions section.
