The Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to restore a tidal marsh in the Columbia River Estuary. The project involves modifying an existing levee that would inundate historic tidal wetlands, create a network of tidal channels and restore native vegetation on 221-acres near Astoria in Clatsop County, Ore. The project would enhance estuary rearing habitat for juvenile salmon and steelhead, as well as provide habitat for wildlife such as deer, elk, and river otter.

To understand the potential environmental impacts of this proposal, BPA will prepare an environmental assessment (EA).  The EA is being prepared to fulfill BPA’s responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act. The Army Corps of Engineers will be a cooperating agency in the development of the EA due to their role as a permitting agency for the levee modification and wetland work.

You can learn about and comment on the proposal at a public meeting hosted by BPA:

Tuesday, January 14, 2014
4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Oregon Department of Forestry
Downstairs in the Nehalem Room
92219 Highway 202
Astoria, OR

Comments on the proposal will be accepted through January 27, 2014.
