Document Description
Note: 38-day Review Per lead The Sonoma County Water Agency is preparing an Environmental Impact Report for the Dry Creek Habitat Enhancement Project, Miles 2-6 (Dry Creek Project). The objective of the Dry Creek Project is to provide habitat in Dry Creek for threatened and endangered fish in order to comply with NMFS' Biological Opinion. The project sites are located within and adjacent to the Dry Creek channel and on private properties from ~one-half mile downstream of Warm Springs Dam to the confluence with the Russian River in an unincorporated area of Sonoma County. The type and extent of habitat modifications is still being determined; however, NMFS Biological Opinion stresses the availability of off-channel habitats in low velocity areas with substantial cover and features such as log or rock weirs, deflectors, log jams, constructed alcoves, side channels, backwaters, and dam pools that can successfully increase the quantity and quality of summer and winter rearing habitat for coho salmon and steelhead.
