East Fork Grays River Restoration Materials Acquisition Contract

East Fork Grays River Restoration Materials Acquisition Contract

General Scope of Work: 

The Cowlitz Indian Tribe (Tribe) has secured grant funding through the Washington Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO), from Washington Coastal Restoration and Resiliency Initiative (WCRRI), and the Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB), to procure materials and implement a large-scale 3.1 mile instream habitat restoration project on the East Fork Grays River and adjacent tributaries (Mitchell Creek & Left Bank Tributary) in Pacific County, Washington.

The Cowlitz Tribe is soliciting proposals from contractors to supply materials for the upcoming project. Specifically, this contract is for the purchase and delivery of boulders and special “boulder collars” needed to create large wood/boulder habitat structures. A “boulder collar” consists of two large boulders that are connected with wire rope (cable) that has been drilled and epoxied, connecting the boulders together (see attached photo appendix). The boulder collars will be used to create large wood/boulder habitat structures on a future project in the East Fork Grays River and adjacent tributaries.

The legacy of an ancient people in southwest Washington is rich with descendants who manage a growing portfolio of health, education, scientific research, housing, transportation, development, elder care, conservation and legal issues. The Cowlitz Tribe is a growing force in community building in what are now Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis and parts of Pierce, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties, a vast territory occupied by numerous Cowlitz villages prior to non-Cowlitz exploration and seizure. Today, an elected Tribal Council is composed of professionals adept at managing multiple programs and projects.
