Document Description
Project is limited to the restoration of erosion sites within the Gregory Creek watershed, a tributary to Donner Lake in the Truckee River Watershed. The watershed is steep, and underlain by fine volcanic soils which are highly erosive. Past land uses have caused significant drainage alterations and during storm events, erosion from the watershed is severe. Several headcuts have developed in the creek and tributaries, leading to even more erosion. The first phase of restoration work will take place in the eastern half of the watershed. The restoration generally consists of treating isolated drainage erosion "hot spots", decommissioning abandoned roads/trails, and replacing eroding trail segments with a sustainable alignment.
