Document Description
The purpose of the project is to stabilize actively eroding slopes and stream banks thus reducing sedimentation into the Truckee River and thereby restoring fish, plant, and wildlife habitat. The nature of the project is to restore five areas of stream bank habitat with native sod, seed, and container plants, along with installation of boulders and wood materials. Additionally, in three separate locations the slope between the Highway 89 and the existing Truckee River Bike Trail will be stabilized with bio-engineered techniques including timber and rock slope protections and revegetation with native, seed, and container plants. Minor grading will occur. No impervious surfaces are included and historic drainage patterns will be maintained. The project will benefit water quality, riparian habitat, and in-stream habitat.
