Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2019-0198-R1 , pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Johnny Phil Harding. The project will install three log structures anchored into the bank of Indian Creek and to log piles driven into the bed of the associated side channel. These structures seek to reduce the velocity of high flow entering the side channel, provide some deflection of high flow back to the main channel, and encourage aggradation in the side channel/backwater area. These structures are an alternative to extensive rock armoring of an eroding bank.
