Document Description
The project operator proposes to conduct instream gravel mining, by dry gravel bar skimming of aggraded gravel, in Healdsburg adjacent to the Syar plant at Bar 2 and in the Middle Reach in Bar 13 just upstream of No Name pit. Gravel available for skimming will be defined by a plane starting one foot above the water level of the low flow channel (250-300 cfs) at the downstream end and extending upstream at no less than 0.1% until it intercepts the interior slope of the upstream buffer. Install temporary crossings of the Russian River, using flatcar bridges placed over the low flow channel, to gain access to the mining sites. Restore habitat values along the river within the project areas by planting or transplanting native riparian vegetation and removing stands of giant reed, Arundo donax, from the banks of the Russian River in the area of Bars 2, 3, and 4. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2005-0518-3 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project operator, Syar Industries Incorporated.
