NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Project will improve fish habitat by placing gravel into the stream channel with the intent of restoring sediment transport processes, such as coarse bedload transport. Up to 1,500 tons of clean, size-sorted natural river gravel will be added into the streambed indirectly using a talus cone. The gravels within the talus cone are transported downstream with high flows, requiring the placement of more gravel after evaluation events.
