Chehalis Basin Strategy – Aquatic Species Restoration Plan (ASRP)

The ASRP is the component of the Chehalis Basin Strategy that focuses on restoring the ecological health of the Chehalis Basin. It supports actions in the freshwater environment where there is a potential to provide substantial gains for aquatic species. The purpose of this funding program is to support implementation of the Chehalis Basin Aquatic Species Restoration Plan restoration and protection strategies.

The vision of the ASRP is to utilize the best available scientific information to protect and restore habitat in the Chehalis Basin, in order to support healthy and harvestable salmon populations, robust and diverse populations of native aquatic and semi-aquatic species, and productive ecosystems that are resilient to climate change and human-caused stressors, while honoring the social, economic, and cultural values of the region and maintaining working lands.
