Document Description
YCWA proposes the Narrows 2 Mitigation Plan, which involves the placement of 30 pieces of large woody material (LWM) in the Yuba River, blow Englebright Dam at three locations. The proposed project will provide improved habitat for juvenile anadromous fish in the Yuba River, as mitigation for a 2015 minimum instream flow violation that resulted in harm to anadromous fishes. LWM will be placed and anchored along the water's edge, facing downstream at an approx. 45-degree angle to the stream bank. LWM will be buried in the streambank using excavated soil or anchored with boulders, t-posts, rebar, or other poles/stakes driven below grade. The Project is estimated to take one to three weeks to complete, and will occur during the low flow period between July through September to minimize in-water work and potential impacts to anadromous fishes. The Project requires certification by the SWRCB pursuant to Clean Water Act.
