The Bureau of Reclamation, along with the Bureau of Land Management and the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, have announced a draft Environmental Assessment/Initial Study (EA/IS) and a public meeting for the Trinity River Restoration Program’s (TRRP) proposed Deep Gulch and Sheridan Creek Rehabilitation Project.
The project is scheduled for implementation in the summer of 2017 and this public meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Junction City, California.
“The meeting will be in an open house format for the public to meet TRRP and Partner personnel, learn about the proposal, ask questions and provide input. Written comments will be accepted at the meeting,” said the Bureau of Reclamation in its announcement.
The proposed project is designed to enhance both terrestrial and aquatic habitat quality.
In-river work will increase habitat complexity via construction of slow water refuge habitats (e.g., side channels), re-connection of the floodplain with the river and placement of in-river geomorphic and habitat features (e.g., rock and wood structures).
