Title:
Trinity River Channel Rehabilitation Sites: Douglas City (River Mile 93.6-94.6) and Lorenz Gulch (River Mile 89.4-90.2)
Site:
Summary:
The Trinity River Restoration Program (TRRP)- including the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (federal co-lead agencies), and the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (Regional Water Board - state lead agency) propose to construct the Trinity River Channel Rehabilitation Sites: Douglas City and Lorenz Gulch. The purpose is to increase salmon and steelhead habitat downstream of Lewiston Dam, as described in the December 19, 2000, Record of Decision for the Trinity River Mainstem Fishery Restoration Environmental Impact Statement. The Proposed Project is planned to enhance both terrestrial and aquatic habitat quality. In-river work will increase habitat complexity via construction of slow water refuge habitats, reconnection of the floodplain with the river, and placement of in-river geomorphic and habitat features (e.g., construction of islands and wood structures). On shore work will include revegetation of riverine and upland areas with native vegetation
