2001 to 2002
RDG’s principals spearheaded the Master Plan for the Restoration of the Sprague and Sycan Rivers near Beatty, Oregon. This master plan included extensive field investigations to evaluate the current river corridor conditions on these two rivers in the Upper Klamath Basin. Additionally, a comprehensive analysis of regional reference reaches and historical channel conditions was conducted. The master plan document has been instrumental for identifying restoration opportunities, acquiring project funding, and attracting additional landowners to the effort. RDG has completed six restoration projects that were identified in the 2002 master plan.
