Title:
Trinity River Channel Rehabilitation Sites: Bucktail (River Mile 105.3-106.25) and Lower Junction City (River Mile 79.3-79.8.
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 2014 Trinity River Channel Rehabilitation Project at the following sites: Bucktail and Lower Junction City. 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 designed 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.

Status:
04/25/2014:
FONSI signed and EA completed April 25, 2014. Construction of Lower Junction City site planned in summer 2014. Bucktail project design will be revised for implementation at a later date and will not move boat ramp to proposed downstream location area.

12/13/2013:
Draft EA/IS available for review on December 13, 2013. Public meeting December 17 at Weaverville public library. Comments due on January 13, 2014.
