Document Description
The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce existing bank erosion and associated inputs of fine sediments into the Napa River, and to enhance riparian and aquatic habitats within the reach to support native fish and wildlife. The project proposes to reduce existing bank erosion and enhance riparian and aquatic habitats by setting back existing earthen berms from the top of the river bank and creating vegetated buffers between the river and adjacent land uses, excavating and planting inset floodplain benches (1.5- to 2-year flood recurrence interval), removing non-native invasive species (e.g., Himalayan blackberry, periwinkle, giant reed, tree-of-heaven) and planting native understory species, installing biotechnical bank stabilization to stabilize actively eroding banks, and installing large woody debris structures and other features to improve aquatic habitat.
