Handouts!


Goals

Goals

  • Identify large wood research and monitoring needs to improve reliability and reduce risk for river restoration projects.

  • What is the current state of science/engineering for large wood restoration projects in rivers?

  • What are pertinent knowledge gaps in the field of large wood design and implementation?

  • What opportunities exist for productive collaboration on large wood project activities and research between agencies and practitioners working in this field?


Schedule

Schedule

  • Today:

  • Talk: Liability of Large Wood in Rivers - David Ekberg (Skellenger Bender)

  • Field Trip! In our 4 vans:

  • ?????

  • Cottonwoods

  • Cedar Stand

  • Aspen Grove

  • Log Jammers


Schedule1

Schedule

  • Tomorrow:

  • Session 1: System and Reach Scale Issues and Contexts in Planning Wood-based Restoration (Talks, Breakout, Discussion)

  • Session 2: Designing at Local Scale (Talks, Breakout, Discussion)


Schedule2

Schedule

  • Wednesday:

  • Session 3: Implementation and Monitoring (Talks, Breakout, Discussion)

  • Discussion: Workshop Product Outline and Next Steps


Discussion outcomes for each topic

Discussion Outcomes for Each Topic

  • Identify tools/guidelines currently used to make predictions

  • Identify science and technology gaps

  • Identify research priorities and methods to address the gaps

  • Specify how risk and uncertainty need to be incorporated

  • Suggest needed field monitoring methods and discuss the temporal and spatial scales of the monitoring

  • Suggest opportunities for productive collaboration between agencies and practitioners working in this field

Goals

  • Identify large wood research and monitoring needs to improve reliability and reduce risk for river restoration projects.

  • What is the current state of science/engineering for large wood restoration projects in rivers?

  • What are pertinent knowledge gaps in the field of large wood design and implementation?

Recommendations

Recommendations

  • Essential : What – Who – How ($)?

  • Suggestion; (DJB)

    • LWD List_Serv hosted by:

    • Discussion group on link-in

    • ASCE task committee on river restoration could be used as a platform

    • Attendee list will be circulated via email

    • Web site link for workshop: post pdf version on website


Recommendations1

Recommendations

  • Databases?

  • Reference Site(s)?

  • Follow up from participants on how group’s recommendation is integrated into programmatic approaches

  • Guidelines and Protocols? – workshop on east/midwest by ACOE or other

  • Model Improvements?

  • Education/Communication/Outreach?

  • Practitioner Coordination/Data Sharing?

  • Specific tools (e.g. Risk Assessment tool LWD Spacing research, etc.?


Recommendations2

Recommendations

  • Databases

  • -links to existing databases/information

  • -where do grant funders post their information? Is there a database that can be referenced?

  • -BPA has database

  • -PNAMP, USFS, USFWS; brianbair will email links


Recommendations3

Recommendations

  • Reference site(s) where pilot projects could be implemented

  • Include more disturbed location (urban a possibility) (Doug, Jock, Tim Abbe)

  • Lower Klamath tributaries (high sedimentation environment) (Rocco)

  • Gravel vs sand bed; warm vs cold water

  • Quinault River could be an example (Bill Armstrong)

  • Upper Green River – need hydrology (Zac)

  • Trinity River (DJ)

  • Entiat River (Leif)

  • LTER sites – long-term ecological research sites (NSF); (Frank)

  • Malcom Forest (Sara)


Recommendations4

Recommendations

  • Guidelines & Protocols

  • Monitoring protocols in progress (West) – Roger Peters

  • Stream restoration implementation handbook – Zac

  • NRCS

  • Scoping of guidelines for large wood design (DJ)

  • Design & implementation – Jock

  • Scaled approach for small river projects

  • River rat project (NOAA) – Brian Cluer

  • Peter Wilcock and jock – The Stream Project

  • Guidelines can force direction of monitoring and limit creativity

  • Synthesize break-out discussions and see if group can prioritize 1 or 2 suggestions


Recommendations5

Recommendations

  • Model Improvements

  • Landscape evolution Watershed scale models and 1D to get at reach-scale questions – CHILD and CAESER models; Tucker UC Boulder – Wes did lit review

  • Geomorphic response predictor - Sara

  • Working from single process representation to multiple process

  • Better data to validate model representation

  • Link between creating habitat and biotic response

  • Decisions are made based on risk – can we include risk based approach into models; Doug has uncertainty analysis for structure that could be elaborated to accommodate project

  • USACE has tool – Zac

  • USACE developing probabilistic method for evaluating

  • Coastal and hydraulics lab that could be improved to apply to wood – Jock

  • Better wood anchoring techniques guidelines

    • NRCS 654, NRCS plant science center

  • Understanding scour better; Casey has current funding proposal


Recommendations6

Recommendations

  • Education/Outreach/Communication

  • Better job with social media (video?)

  • How to engage FEMA to change policy – Casey has contacts at Region 10 that may be a good platform

  • Wood management and utilization in flood response manual – Jock

  • Wood sourcing from road right-a-ways – highway departments

  • Non-profits and tribes; wood debris managers could be engaged to better utilize

  • Sven Lee – federal highways engineer (Zac)

  • Public broadcasting spots for wood

  • Smokey the bear!!

  • David Suzuki Foundation

  • Using existing foundations to help promote wood

  • NGOs

  • Getting right message out key – what is role of wood in a river; what are expectations

  • Corridor concept

  • Navigable river management - ACOE

  • Pamphlet for Trinity River and postcards – DJ

  • Share existing materials that have been used at a local scale


Recommendations7

Recommendations

  • Practitioner Coordination / Data Sharing


Recommendations8

Recommendations

  • Specific Tools
