Document Description
The purposed of this project is to enhance habitat for fish and wildlife. The enhancement will be accomplished by management of the Carmel River Lagoon's water level each spring to maximize the volume of freshwater in the lagoon at the beginning of the summer dry season. A major objective of the project is to protect and enhance habitat for the Carmel River populations of the federal threatened steelhead trout and California red legged frog. To raise the lagoon level the sandy beach separating the lagoon from the ocean will be modified each spring using bulldozers to increase the height of the beach and creating a high-elevation outlet channel. Specific decisions regarding the timing of management actions each year will be made by State Parks in consultation with the Carmel Lagoon Technical Advisory committee (TAC).
