Logs being Removed

Post by Pedro on Mon 18 Apr 2011, 11:18 am

I drove up AF canyon yesterday evening and noticed that they must have had some large equipment in there pulling out BIG logs. I’m assuming that this is in preparation for flooding. I also noticed that they were not to concerned with pulling out all logs because there are still lots of river wide ones left up in and above the park. They even pulled out smaller stuff that had been cut previously.
I was just wondering if anyone knows who is responsible for this work or knows anyone doing it. It would be cool to pull out some of the logjams to prevent flooding and encourage kayaking.
Also has anyone else noticed this in other watersheds?

There is a backhoe on this news clip pulling wood out from a bridge.

I think they do this because bridges can be washed out after wood collects on them; then with flood flows, the bridge can be lost. I heard that happened somewhere on the N fork Ogden; I believe the county will pull wood from the vicinity of those bridges (and the creek upstream) if the residents up there call them.

The bridges to the camping areas could be threatened by AF. Boaters are probably still a non-factor; but its great if they get out some of the wood.

I cleaned out Squiggles a few days back

...as well as a few other spots on the Lower and was able to get some big logs heading downstream. Not sure if this is the wood you were referring to or not. A lot of logs have been redistributed as the flows have come up also, some heading out of the canyon, others stuck in new spots, or hung up temporarily midstream waiting for more water to send them west.

I put on a fuzzy beaver suit and black cap and tried to blend in. What they don't know won't get me in trouble...or something like that.
