Document Description
The Scott River Bioengineered Streambank Enhancement Project proposes to reduce instream sediment and temperature loads in the Scott River through riparian planting and stream bank bio-engineering. The Scott River is listed for temperature and sediment under the Scott River TMDL (adopted 2005). The riparian corridor creates a series of benefits to the water quality of the stream: shade, bank stabilization, filtration of pollutants, and generation of channel complexity and fish habitat. This project will protect and enhance a key salmon bearing reach of the Scott River Mainstem by increasing the occurrence and density of riparian vegetation and extending the width and linear distance of the currently extant riparian corridor. This project focuses on a specific reach of the Scott River between River Mile 42 and 53 (Etna Creek to the Scott River Tailings near Callahan). This project will utilize a combination of bioengineered stream banks and riparian planting effort. This stream bank stabilization is necessary at certain locations in the Scott River in order to treat actively eroding banks and support the riparian plantings at early stages. The two banks to be treated in this project are actively eroding, and threaten to flank existing riparian vegetation and leave the Scott River in the middle of agricultural fields.
