Document Description
This Project will restore ecological processes and native riparian vegetation on approximately 195 acres of agricultural fields along the San Joaquin River. The primary goal of the Project is to improve connectivity and habitat quality for anadromous fish and other sensitive species. This will be achieved through improved floodplain inundation, frequency, and residence time; improved stream quality and habitat productivity; increased cool water refugia and improved food web productivity to benefit fish and other riparian-dependent wildlife. Project work will establish native vegetation, modify an existing farmer berm to reconnect historic floodplains and allow natural river process, and grade a swale to maintain flood conveyance and minimize fish entrapment risks. Reconnection of this acreage to the San Joaquin River will allow flooding for habitat benefits and transient floodwater storage. Native vegetation will be established using standard agricultural techniques including site preparation, drip and furrow irrigation, as well as chemical and mechanical weed control.
