Navarro River Streamflow Enhancement Implementation Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This implementation project is focused on increasing dry season flows in the Navarro River watershed that will benefit Coho Salmon and Steelhead. Recovery plans have identified dry season flows as a key limiting factor to salmonid recovery. High priority recovery actions include decreasing dry season water diversions, increasing off-stream water storage capacity, and increasing water dedications for instream flow. This project will: A) implement a 120,000-gallon rainwater catchment, irrigation use efficiency upgrades, and a forbearance project (this will increase off-stream storage capacity and decrease dry-season diversion. It will also dedicate water to instream flow); B) implement a groundwater infiltration project (this will increase groundwater storage capacity); and C) conduct long term monitoring by maintaining the associated gauge network and infiltration baseline data collection. These projects will benefit Coho Salmon and Steelhead in the Navarro River watershed. WCB Project Tracker ID: 2022022.
