Document Description
The meadow restoration at Faith Valley Meadow in the West Fork Carson River watershed will use beaver dam analogs (BDAs) and post assisted log structures (PALSs) to raise the water table and capture sediment. BDAs will be strategically placed to enhance aggradation and floodplain reconnection. PALSs, which mimic natural wood accumulation, will increase habitat complexity, and help to move water onto the floodplain. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has extended Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2020-0173-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Matthew Zumstein. Routine maintenance work, as described in this Agreement includes the following: removing debris, vegetation, rubbish, downed trees, and other material that could obstruct the natural flow; controlling weeds, grasses, emergent vegetation, and woody vegetation; repairing and maintaining culverts, bridges, and small structures; making repairs to control erosion and stabilize banks; and other work necessary to maintain the functional and structural integrity of waterways
