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), reconnection of the floodplain to the river, and placement of in-river geomorphic and habitat features (e.g., rock and wood structures).

On-shore work will include revegetation of riverine and upland areas with native vegetation.
