Document Description
Restore a portion of the Upper Truckee River and adjacent floodplain. The objectives of the Project are to improve natural function of the channel, increase overbank flow frequency, and deposit sediment into the floodplain more frequently. Controlling the flow and gradient, protecting the stream banks and designing to allow the river to overtop its banks during peak periods will have many benefits including: reduced velocities, more frequent flooding of the meadow during high flows, improved riparian and meadow vegetation, higher groundwater, more productive fisheries, improved macroinvertebrate populations and terrestrial wildlife habitat, and a reduction in fine sediment transport during overbanking events.
