The project is a Use Permit, a Flood Hazard Development Permit, grading permit, and a Williamson Act Open Space Agreement, to construct a mitigation bank for juvenile salmonid (salmon) and Swainson's hawk nesting habitat. The project site is an oxbow of the Sacramento River and is bordered by the Sacramento River on three sides. The interior 88 acres of the oxbow is a cultivated field. Agricultural land surrounds the project site on the west side in Yolo County and across. The project would breach the existing farm berm along the Sacramento River and excavate back-water channels to restore floodplain function and create seasonal aquatic habitat on approximately 96 acres that would be newly inundated during Sacramento River flood events.
