Document Description
As part of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP), Chinook salmon are scheduled to be re-introduced into the San Joaquin River where they have been extirpated for the last 60 years. Degradation of spawning grounds in streams and rivers has been implicated as one of the causes of salmon endangerment. This study will assess the current conditions of water quality, sediment, and invertebrate assemblage in potential spawning habitat in Reach 1A of the San Joaquin River. The information gathered from this research will assist in the restoration design for the river.
