The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is making available a Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for the Oaks Bottom Habitat Restoration Project in Multnomah County, Oregon.

Most importantly, this project would make Oaks Bottom habitat suitable and accessible to juvenile salmonids listed under the Endangered Species Act.
