The objectives of this restoration project are to rehabilitate and enhance channel, floodplain, and riparian ecosystem processes and critical habitats for juvenile and adult Chinook salmon and steelhead. The project consists of re-grading and rehabilitating ~6 acres of dredger tailings on the historic floodplain and ~5.5 acres of salmonid spawning habitat. Over a 5-year period, the floodplain will be graded and material from the floodplain will be screened to appropriate size classes and approximately 56,000 yd of this material will be placed within the spawning channel.
