Title: Trout Creek swamp restoration environmental assessment
Author: Sisters Ranger District (Or.)
Abstract: Proposes to restore the natural hydrologic functions of the swamp by re-establishing historic, shallow stream channels through the interior. Includes digging channels by mechanical means, replacing the culvert under Forest Road 1520 with a more "fish-friendly" design, filling in the ditches to prevent water from flowing back into those created channels, removing some of the conifers, and actively controlling the amount of reed canarygrass by burning, flaming, and raising the water table.
Description: 51 pp. Map, table, references. The swamp is located about 10 miles west of Sisters, in Deschutes County, Oregon, on the Sisters Ranger District of the Deschutes National Forest (Figure 1). The swamp is just south of Whispering Pines Campground, at the junction of Forest Roads 1018 and 1520. Captured May 25, 2007.
