Confluence Floodplain Restoration:  Conceptual Visualization

This 30-second video illustrates how Willamette Confluence ponds created by past gravel mining could be restored to improve habitat for salmon, turtles and other aquatic species.  Breaking through old berms leftover from gravel mining could connect the ponds to the mainstem of the Willamette River.  Native vegetation would filter high winter flows that spread over the floodplain, detaining flood water and reducing downstream flood peaks.
