Document Description
The project proposes to restore the natural morphology of three relatively small, high elevation meadows in Amador County, California. The purpose of the project is to improve hydrologic functions of the meadow systems by improving water quality, timing of flows, recovery of sediment deposition, and arrest channel head cutting through installation of rock riffles, log weirs, and a roughened channel. Implementation of these actions would also increase and prolong the duration of late season flows for the benefit of flora and fauna and downstream users by reducing downstream flood peaks.
