Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2018-0189-R3, pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, City of St. Helena. This project is the first part of a two-part project, the Upper York Creek Ecosystem Restoration, that will be constructed over two construction seasons. This Phase 1 project includes constructing 30 large woody debris sediment traps over an approximately 3,214 linear-foot reach of York Creek downstream of the York Creek Dam (Dam). Due to the Dam, this stretch of York Creek is sediment starved. Once the Dam is removed in Phase 2, the purpose of the sediment traps is to capture impounded sediment from upstream of the Dam and create spawning and rearing habitat for steelhead, as well as habitat that will benefit other aquatic species. Each sediment trap is expected to capture between 25 and 50 cubic yards of sediment. Sediment traps will consist of salvaged timber material from an off-site location. Each structure will be constructed on site and field fit based on one of the three design types, or any combination thereof: See NOD for full details.
