Large Wood Nourishment Pilot Project at Libby Dam for Improved Kootenai River Functionality

Green River NNBF created from large wood nourishment project (credit: Kleinschmidt Associates-R2 Resource Consultants, Inc.)

This project will create a permanent large wood nourishment management program at Libby Dam, and provide a template for initiating similar programs in other locations or by other USACE Districts and agencies. The project will demonstrate that natural, process-based approaches can result in more cost-effective solutions compared to more traditional hard engineering approaches.
