Document Description
The Truckee River Watershed Council is proposing the Martis Wildlife Area Restoration Project, which consists of stream and habitat restoration on Martis Creek and tributaries to the creek. Objectives for the project include: improving the ecological function of the Martis Creek system, increasing the floodplain area, restoring riparian bed and aquatic habitat, and reducing excess sedimentation in Martis Creek. Restoration work will involve grading creek banks to reduce streambank erosion and improve floodplain function, introducing bioengineered check dams to increase water surface elevations, replacing aging and failed culverts, and restoring native plant communities. The project is located within the US Army Corps of Engineers Martis Creek Lake & Dam Project in Martis Valley, CA, approx 3 miles south of the Town Truckee.
