Description Germany Creek is located in Cowlitz County, Washington, and is a tributary to the Columbia River west of Longview. The upper watershed of the creek is managed for forest products. Unstable terrain coupled with extensive forest harvest in the 1960’s through 1980’s led to accelerated mass wasting and channel impacts. In 1990 a process was set up to begin addressing these impacts and to begin recovery of the channel. At that time photo points along the channel system were set up and channel stability conditions were evaluated. These same photo points and channel evaluations were redone in 2000. This report summarizes findings from the ten-year interval and provides the photos, photo point locations and stability evaluation data, and locations in a manner that will allow repeatability in the future.
