Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2008-0078-R2 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Feather River Coordinated Resource Management. This agreement pertains to a demonstration project for stabilization of a severely incised bank of Sulphur Creek on the Seeliger and DePaoli Ranch. About 500 feet of the cut bank will be laid back to a slope of 1:1 with a toe being created at the base. Boulder vanes will be placed into the creek directed into the channel and upstream at approximately a 25 degree angle. Footing rock and gravel for the vanes will be obtained on site from a gravel bar that is present. Following creation of the new slope it will be revegetated with whole willow bushes and cut saplings along the toe of the slope. Willow wattles and other native shrubs will be planted further up the slope in a manner that should prevent rill erosion. During construction the water in Sulphur Creek will be diverted out of the main channel and into a secondary channel that is present on the other side of the gravel bar. Once construction is complete the water will be re-directed back into the primary channel.
