Project Description

The project included restoring approximately 325 linear feet of stream channel within a 5 acre meadow located within northern Shasta County on private land. The restoration technique used the “pond and plug” technique to fill an enlarged channel and redirect flow to a stable remnant channel. The Fall River Resource Conservation District assisted the landowner and received technical and financial assistance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF), and CA Dept. Conservation (DOC).
