Document Description
The project will mechanically grade a gravel bar located adjacent to the Narrows 2 Powerhouse in order to prevent the formation of an isolation pool that has the potential to strand federally threatening spring-run Chinook salmon and central valley steelhead. YCWA plans to use a helicopter to transport 2 mini-excavators, and place them on top of the gravel bar. YCWA staff will use a small boat to access the Project site. The downstream end of the gravel bar will be graded to prevent the formation of an isolation pool. An area approx. 3,200 sq. ft. will be graded. Material from the gravel bar will be used to fill the deepest part of the isolation pool, reducing the isolation pool's potential to strand anadromous fish.
