UW Stage-0 Suitability Tool

The Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Board (UCSRB) tasked a UW student group with utilizing GIS to create a framework for watershed-scale evaluation of stage-0 floodplain restoration potential in the basin. 21 sites were evaluated in total across all four watersheds, encompassing over 5,970 acres in potential restoration area. Results were compiled for four Upper Columbia watersheds; Wenatchee, Entiat, Methow and Okanogan.
