Title:
Trinity River Restoration Program: Indian Creek Rehabilitation Site: Trinity River mile 93.7 to 96.5 EA/EIR
Site:
Summary:
The Project purpose and need is to provide increased juvenile salmonid rearing habitat on the mainstem Trinity River and to reduce flow impacts to homes and other human improvements located adjacent to the Trinity River, from implementation of ROD flows. The Indian Creek Rehabilitation Project is located upstream and downstream of the Indian Creek delta on the Trinity River near Douglas City, California. Proposed project work is tiered off the Trinity River Restoration Program (TRRP) Record of Decision. In addition to berm and vegetation removal, floodplain lowering, feathering selected river edges (10:1 slope), and revegetation, the TRRP has defined additional treatment activities for potential implementation within the Project that would target enhancement of river processes and creation of juvenile fish rearing habitat. These activities include lowering the floodplain for inundation between 1,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) and 6,000 cfs, excavation of the Indian Creek delta, and development of a low flow side channel just upstream of the mouth of Weaver Creek on the Trinity River. These activities would not only increase fisheries habitat, but are also expected to lower upstream flood elevations. An additional $500,000 grant has been received by Trinity County, from the California Department of Fish and Games Fisheries Restoration Grant program, in support of this project.
