Background: Planning for the Bear Creek cooperative project, which consists of instream restoration and barrier culvert removal, began in 2009 with local land owners, Lane County planning/engineering, BLM fisheries staff and staff from the Long Tom River Watershed Council (LTWC). The project is located within the Long Tom River 5th Field Watershed Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC). Five phases have been proposed. Phase one (Lane County) was completed in the fall of 2014 and consisted of the removal of a barrier culvert and replacement with a fish friendly pipe on County Road 4096. Phase two consists of the replacement of a fish barrier culvert on road 19-5-22.1. This culvert will be replaced in the summer of 2015 with a fish passage culvert through a BLM contract. Phase 3 and 4 will be completed under this assistance agreement. Phase five is located upstream of the above mentioned restoration work. Phase five work has been initiated by BLM fisheries staff in the summer of 2014 and consisted of pulling trees and zip lining them into the stream channel and also falling stream adjacent trees into Bear Creek. Phase 5 would occur on BLM Section 21, of T19S R5W future similar work will continue to occur based on funding. NEPA has been completed for all phases of the Bear Creek project. Match funding for this project has been awarded to BLM and LTWC cooperators for phases 3 and 4. These funds cannot be used by any other recipients.
