Title:
American River Spawning Gravel EA; 2010 supplemental EA; 2011 supplemental EA
Site:
Summary:
Reclamation will add spawning gravel to the lower American River at seven sites from Nimbus Dam to Upper Sunrise Park and from Jed Smith Bridge to Arden Rapids. Three side-channel habitats would also be established. The purpose of the action is to replenish spawning gravel at the seven restoration sites and to establish side-channel habitat to increase and improve Chinook salmon and steelhead spawning and rearing habitat.****** The Supplemental FONSI and EA, signed September 3, 2010, evaluated change in gravel sources and use of roads.******* The 2011 Supplemental FONSI and EA evaluated the addition of woody material into some or all of the main channel sites identified in the 2008 EA. The woody material would create slow water areas in the immediate vicinity of the gravel placement and provide cover and feeding areas for juvenile fish.
