River Design Group and Tetra Tech were selected by the McKenzie River Trust to provide hydraulic modeling, design, and permit preparation services for restoring the historical McKenzie River channel and floodplain at MRT’s Green Island property. Project elements include restoring gravel pit ponds, improving the connection between the Willamette River and a historical channel of the McKenzie River, and improving two vehicle crossings to maintain site access. The effort will be completed over the next year and will culminate in construction-ready design plans. Project implementation is planned for 2012-2013.
