Document Description
The Sacramento Watersheds Action Group (SWAG) is requesting approval to conduct creek and riparian habitat restoration and fishery-enhancement activities for the middle reach of Sulphur Creek, including over 4,000 feet of anadromous fisheries habitat. With restoration, the creek has great potential for improved spawning and non-natal rearing of juvenile salmonids, including steelhead trout and Chinook salmon. The overall project objectives include: restoration of the natural stream channel's morphology and function; enhancement of wildlife habitat by maximizing fish passage, spawning, rearing, and escapement, and by improving the riparian condition; increasing recreation and educational opportunities in the watershed; decreasing flooding potential of existing access roads; improvement of water quality; and protection of an existing sanitary sewer line that crosses the Middle Fork Sulphur Creek.
