Document Description
This project will develop plans to dedicate up to 2.36 cfs from Evan’s Spring to the Little Shasta River by engaging with a private landowner (the Harts) to identify opportunities for enhancing instream flows, increasing irrigation efficiencies, and improving water quality in the Little Shasta River. This will improve important habitats for all aquatic species, but particularly anadromous fish species of state and federal concern by allowing the cold, clean, nutrient-rich Evan’s Spring water to be left instream to benefit fish and wildlife all the way to the mouth of the Little Shasta River – adding roughly 1710 ac-ft of water per year to the system. This project will build on preliminary (~30%) design plans for reconnecting Evan’s Spring to the Little Shasta River and preliminary (~30%) design plans for on-farm irrigation efficiencies and take both sets of preliminary designs to 90-100% and create drafts of the necessary environmental permitting, NEPA, and CEQA documentation for future implementation. All instream dedications will be protected using §1707s. WCB Project Tracker ID: 2022021.
