Project Info

Title
Lower Stony Creek Watershed Coordinated Permit Program
Description
This project is a demonstration project to show the most appropriate techniques to controlling non-native plant species and re-vegetating banks with native vegetation to control bank erosion. Landowners within the lower watershed would like to implement similar projects throughout the lower watershed. The Glenn County RCD is currently working on a watershed restoration plan that will create construction plans under the guidance of practices implemented in this project. Arundo and Tamarisk removal will be accomplished using a variety of methods, depending on the size of infestation and estimated density of invasives. The project will demonstrate both physical and chemical removal methods, although the chemical methods are generally considered more effective. The methods vary in their effectiveness and cost, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. The project will evaluate the following parameters for each method: procedure, recommended use, effectiveness, equipment requirement, cost per acre, timing, personnel requirement, advantages, and disadvantages.
