Cobble Area Aquatic Watershed Restoration Prioritization and Rehabilitation Plan
This plan provides a rationale and means to prioritize the allocation of resources for the restoration of watershed in the Cobble Area. While the extraction and development of natural resources has been and continues to be important to the economies of the nearby communities of Thorne Bay and Coffman Cove, many watersheds now require some level of rehabilitation to restore ecosystem function. The 2004 Cobble Landscape Assessment recommended a series of projects designed to meet the desired future condition objectives of the Forest Plan. The Cobbler Area Aquatic Watershed Restoration Prioritization and Rehabilitation Plan (1) assesses the conditions or health of 18 watersheds within the Cobble Area, (2) identifies watersheds with high quality functioning habitat, (3) prioritizes watersheds for restoration, (4) recommends actions to accelerate the recovery of watershed patterns and processes, and (5) provides schedules and cost estimates for implementation and monitoring.
