Outcomes

The USBWP takes on projects that benefit entire watersheds, making them healthier and more resilient by boosting fish passage, addressing erosion and water temperature problems, and renewing stream corridors—all in ways that respect agriculture.

Our work includes:

  • Riparian habitat restoration
  • Instream habitat improvement
  • Fish-migration barrier removal
  • Instream flow enhancement
  • Irrigation diversion fish-screening

In our valley, the mentality has changed. Now, everyone’s seeing the importance of doing these kinds of projects.
