Document Description
The Porter Creek Barrier Removal Project is a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) proposed for compliance with the State Water Resources Control Board (WR 2010-0014-EXEC). This project will be financed by the E&J Gallo Winery Inc. (Gallo) as mitigation for the operations along Porter Creek. The Porter Creek Barrier Removal Project is designed to address habitat limiting factor for salmonids resulting from a bridge support structure which is a flat 20ft long concrete slab installed across the bottom of Porter Creek. The structure acts to support two 12ft tall concrete buttresses which hold back road fill and support a wood and steel bridge across Porter Creek. The feature in the channel bed creates a uniformed shallow flow for 20 ft before a 4 ft. deep plunge at its downstream end. During low flow periods, a shallow, fast moving, laminar flow is created through the structure. A salmonid trying to swim through this structure would not be able to negotiate through this fast and shallow flow area. The structure is passable to fish only recently after large storm events. To alleviate this issue, this project will remove a section of the concrete slab structure.
