Document Description
The primary goals of the Restoration Project are to improve the hydrologic function of the headwater meadows, springs, fens and other riparian habitats which contribute to downstream hydrologic flows, and to reduce sedimentation to the downstream watersheds. The need for this project comes as a result of the 2000 Storrie Fire effects to the Yellow Creek subwatersheds. The fire led to an increase in erosion and sedimentation to the larger North Fork Feather River watershed, including the Yellow Creek subwatersheds and tributaries. Riffles and plugs would be constructed to reconnect the oversized channels with the floodplain, raise ground water levels, reduce erosion, and reactivate the historic floodplain. Debris jams would be constructed where the gully size has increased to a width beyond practicality for filling, or where gully access for fill material is not practical. In addition, proposed activities include road maintenance and decommissioning of unauthorized non-system roads.
