Title:
Trinity River Restoration Program: Lewiston-Dark Gulch Rehabilitation Project: Trinity River Mile 105.4 to 111.7 EA/EIR
Site:
Summary:
This mechanical channel rehabilitation project is one of those originally identified in the Interior Secretary's 12/19/00 Record of Decision as a necessary step towards restoration of the Trinity River's anadromous fishery. The purpose of the proposed Project is to provide increased juvenile salmonid rearing habitat on the mainstem Trinity River. Construction will create additional fish and wildlife habitat that is expected to increase over time as river processes are restored. Work to be performed includes re-contouring bank and floodplain features, and creation of side channels, as well as conducting in-river work such as gravel placement and grade control removal. Gravel additions were made during high flows in May 2008 and to be performed annually thereafter. Construction in-river and on the channel itself began in August 2008 and is ongoing. The Trinity County Resource Conservation District is working as a partner agency under a grant from the California Department of Fish and Game's Klamath River Restoration Grant Program

Status:
