Document Description
USFWS and CDFW, in cooperation with the multi-agency Shasta Crayfish Technical Review Committee and Shasta Crayfish Recovery Implementation Team, are creating refuge habitat for Shasta crayfish in an isolated, historically occupied segment of Rock Creek in the Hat Creek Drainage in Shasta County, CA. The objective of the Rock Creek Meadow Restoration Project is to create a refuge habitat for Shasta crayfish where they will be isolated from impacts that are causing their decline. To accomplish this objective the Project will restore a 650-ft reach of Rock Creek to pre-diversion conditions, which will recreate high-quality habitat for Shasta crayfish, along with reintroduction of Shasta crayfish to the restored reach and an existing isolated pool thereby establishing a refuge population safe from the effects of invasive species. Shasta crayfish will be relocated from a nearby declining population to Rock Creek. To fully restore streamflow, it is proposed to move the hatchery diversion and intake approximately 650 ft downstream of its current location. The stream channel above the new diversion will be restored and Shasta crayfish would be reintroduced to the restored and rewatered channel. These activities are intended to help meet the goals of the USFWS Shasta Crayfish Recovery Plan and avoid extinction of the species.
