Thanks to a grant from the Rose Foundation, in 2012 ERRP members monitored water temperature throughout the basin, engaged in toxic algae surveillance and conducted fall Chinook salmon counts.
Here are the reports:
2012 Eel River Temperature Flows and Toxic Algae
2012 Chinook Salmon Census Dive
To empower communities to collaborate in monitoring the ecological conditions of the Eel River. To share information about the health of the watershed and work together to formulate and implement a restoration strategy.
The Eel River ecosystem is at a cross roads. While Chinook salmon and steelhead trout populations are rebounding due to recent wet springs and good ocean conditions, increasing water depletion and nutrient pollution appear to be causing major water quality problems, including toxic algae blooms in downstream areas. Eel River communities need to be more aware of the role they play in pollution problems. ERRP intends to assist data collection to better understand problems, provide needed education and be a catalyst for action.
