Circle Creek is a key wild Coho salmon tributary of the Lower Necanicum River located on the south side of Seaside, Oregon in the northern coast range.  Road construction parallel to and/or over various reaches of the stream since the early 1900’s has caused stream/floodplain modifications that hinder natural stream functions.

Coho Creek Fish Passage
January 72016

Coho Creek is a tributary of the Neawanna Creek in the Lower Necanicum River watershed. The project site is a fish passage barrier culvert under a 20 foot tall road fill on Spruce Loop Road leading to Seaside Heights Elementary School. The barrier culvert is upstream from beaver pond rearing habitat and blocks access to potential coho salmon, cutthroat trout, and possibly winter steelhead, spawning habitat.

Circle Creek Tributaries
January 72016

Circle Creek, and its larger tributaries, are key wild Coho salmon tributaries of the Lower Necanicum River, located on the south side of Seaside, in the northern coast range. This project will consist of work done on two of these tributaries, Square Creek and an unnamed tributary, both on The Campbell Group property.

The riparian vegetation in the Lower Necanicum River Watershed has been severely altered in the past 100 years. The negative effects of timber harvest, livestock usage, road construction and urbanization on the native plant communities have impacted the entire watershed. This project addresses several riparian sites within the watershed with supportive landowners who want to plant native trees and shrubs and control the spread of invasive, noxious weeds.

Neitzel Farm Restoration
January 72016

The Neitzel Farm Restoration project is located on the Necanicum River just off Highway 26.  The farm is the last remaining intact farm in the Necanicum watershed that has not been subject to subdivision or partition.  The landowners were committed to a comprehensive habitat restoration effort to restore the historic braided side channel/alcove complex with associated emergent scrub shrub riparian wetlands, and the conifer dominated floodplain riparian forest that were present on the farm prior to conversion to agriculture in the early 1900’s.

Joe Creek Restoration

Faller’s Choice
January 72016

Faller’s Choice project was an extension of a 2007 project in the Upper Necanicum.

More Information»

The Dichter Tributary became a candidate for restoration through two convergent sources. ODFW district staff had identified the tributary as a potential project area based on apparent fish passage issues. Additionally, The Campbell Group’s road engineering and maintenance staff, upon taking ownership of the watershed in 2009, identified the culvert as a replacement need while also recognizing the fish habitat value of the stream. Because of the instream/riparian restoration potential, the action surfaces as a priority for both, and it was brought to the watershed council’s attention.

This project is on the South Fork of the Necanicum River at a channel-spanning diversion dam located approximately 1.2 miles upstream from the confluence with the mainstem Necanicum. The project also has a fish screening component at a secondary municipal diversion at River mile 5 on the mainstem of the Necanicum at Peterson Point. The diversion dam supplies municipal water to the City of Seaside and presents several conservation problems.

Forest Lake Restoration
December 312015

Located just southeast of the town of Seaside, Oregon, the project site is the result of extensive filling of flood plain of the Necanicum River, and the entire relocation of the river channel from overburden to develop a hard rock quarry in the mid-1950s. In addition, the focus restoration area was mined for alluvial basalt cobble then diked to create a lake as an amenity to the “Forest Lake campground and RV park” in the late 60’s.
