Description The Okanogan Highlands Alliance (OHA), together with its partners Trout Unlimited (TU) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), will implement the Triple Creek Water Quality Restoration Project in the Myers Creek drainage located in north central Washington. This project is funded, in part, with Ecology agreement WQC-2016-OkHiAl-00126 and will use in-stream structures known as beaver dam analogs (BDAs). BDAs mimic beaver dams and are projected to aggrade the incised creek and re-connect the channel with its floodplain slowly over time. Water quality concerns will be addressed by reconnecting the floodplain and historic wetland, establishing riparian vegetation, and re-establishing wetland hydrologic functions.

The monitoring component of this project is the subject of this Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP).
