Document Description
The proposed project is a habitat restoration project to support anadromous fish populations on the Lower Mokelumne River. Availability of spawning gravel in this section of the Mokelumne River has been determined to be deficient. Juvenile Salmonid rearing habitat is also limited in the Mokelumne River due to channel incision. This reach of the river is known to support fall-run Chinook salmon and steelhead spawning and rearing. The project will place approximately 2,500 to 5,000 yds3 of spawning gravel annually for a 3-year period at two sites, and then provide annual supplementation of approximately 500 to 1,000 yds3 thereafter, as part of a long term restoration. Additionally, rearing habitat would be improved by the creation of small (<1 acre) floodplains that will seasonally inundate in the East Bay Municipal Utility District's Mokelumne River Day Use Area.
