Title:
2011 CVPIA Gravel Replenishment Program Stanislaus River at River Mile 58
Site:
Summary:
Reclamation proposes to add up to 5,500 cubic yards of gravel to the Lower Stanislaus River at River Mile 58 below Goodwin Dam in 2011. The gravel would be distributed across the channel to create suitable spawning and rearing habitat conditions for steelhead trout and Chinook salmon. Reclamation has been replenishing spawning gravel at existing restoration sites in the Lower Stanislaus River since 1997 to increase and improve Chinook salmon, steelhead, and rainbow trout spawning and rearing habitat. Reclamation prepared an environmental assessment (EA) in 1997 and supplemental EAs in 2000 and 2004 for previous work in the Lower Stanislaus River. The methodologies, locations, and impact descriptions of the proposed action are the same as the methods and gravel placement sites covered in the above referenced Environmental Assessment and Supplements, which covered actions through 2006 and thus another supplemental EA is not needed.
