The following document is intended to serve as revised performance standards and recommendations for riparian restoration projects generating credits under Willamette Partnership’s Ecosystem Credit Accounting System. The original standards were developed through collaboration with riparian restoration experts in the Willamette and Rogue Basins and have since been applied in those watersheds as well as Oregon’s John Day and NorthCoast watersheds. The standards have continued to evolve between their first application in 2011 and presently in 2016. Through that time, additional input and review were solicited from entities that operate throughout Oregon representing expertise in agricultural production, riparian restoration, and mitigation.
