Summary

Continuous water temperature data were collected at multiple sites along the Middle Fork and mainstem Willamette Rivers between Jasper and Newberg, Oregon, to support effectiveness monitoring for a large-scale channel and floodplain restoration program (Willamette Focused Investment Partnership, WFIP). Continuous water temperature loggers were deployed at a subset of WFIP restoration sites where river restoration activities were implemented to improve habitat conditions for native fish species. Data from water temperature monitoring will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of restoration activities at improving habitat conditions for Endangered Species Act (ESA)-listed salmonids and other native fish in the Willamette River. Additionally, [...]

Purpose

Data from water temperature monitoring will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of restoration activities that target improvements in water temperature for ESA-listed and other native fish occupying the Willamette River. Additionally, water temperature monitoring in summer and early fall months at restoration sites is useful for determining whether thermal conditions at sites are supportive, harmful, or lethal for various native fish species.
