Kapusta 1B Side Channel Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Project consists of constructing a river side channel along the west bank of the Sacramento River with an inlet and outlet connected to the river. Suitable gravel obtained from channel excavation will be sorted onsite and placed in the Sacramento River to provide spawning habitat for adult salmonids. Activities include excavating a linear side channel designed to remain inundated during low flow conditions, repurposing removed woody debris from excavation for in-stream habitat features for fish within the side channel, and seeding disturbed areas with native plant species to mitigate for temporary and permanent impacts.
