Document Description
The proposed project consists of the following key elements: (1) addition or replacement of approximately 16,000 cubic yards (CY) of spawning gravel to multiple locations within the river to improve spawning conditions in these areas, including building in-river access routes to reach these areas; (2) excavation of accumulated streambed material from the entrance of Moe’s Side Channel to improve hydraulic capacity and redistribute material at the head of Upper Auditorium Riffle to improve spawning conditions; (3) excavation of accumulated streambed material from the entrance and exit of the Bedrock Park side channel to increase flows and improve potential habitat accessibility; and (4) minor spoiling of excavated material in an area adjacent to the exit of the Bedrock Park Side Channel to avoid off-site haul of materials through a public park (see Figure2).Environmental commitments incorporated into the proposed project’s design include preparing a construction management plan; conducting worker environmental awareness training; implementing DWR’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan; and preparing a stormwater pollution prevention plan, spill prevention and control plan, and a fire protection and prevention plan.
