Document Description
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has proposed a fish passage improvement project on the South Fork of Cottonwood Creek at a site known as the Hammer Diversion. The project includes removal of the existing diversion dam and implementing improvements to meet the landowner's water and power needs. Improving fish passage at this site will restore anadromous fish access to an additional five miles of historic spawning, rearing and holding stream habitat. The project is being funded by the USFWS through the Anadromous Fish Restoration Program (AFRP). The CDFW is providing equipment, supplies and agency personnel to implement the dam demolition portion of the project. The Central Valley Regional Water Control Board is the lead agency for the project under CEQA.
