The Battle Creek Salmon and Steelhead Restoration Project (Restoration Project) is being implemented near the town of Manton, California in Shasta and Tehama Counties (Project Location Map) (PDF - 1.34 MB).

The species include the Central Valley spring-run Chinook salmon (state- and federally listed as threatened), the Sacramento River winter-run Chinook salmon (state- and federally listed as endangered), and the Central Valley steelhead (federally listed as threatened).

The Restoration Project is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), Pacific Gas and Electric Company and various resource agencies, including the California State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries), the California Department of Fish and Game, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the California Bay Delta Authority, with valuable participation from the public, including the Greater Battle Creek Watershed Working Group and the Battle Creek Watershed Conservancy.
