This will be the second Mechanical Channel Rehabilitation Project that

EA/EIR ends on March 27, 2006.  

Please call or email with questions.


The Bureau of Reclamation, the Federal lead agency, and the North Coast
Regional Water Quality Control Board, the State lead agency, announce
the availability of an Environmental Assessment/Draft Environmental
Impact Report (EA/DEIR) for the Canyon Creek Suite of Sites: Trinity
River Mile 73-78 (Project). The joint document is being prepared under
guidance of the Trinity River Restoration Program and meets California
Environmental Quality Act and National Environmental Policy Act

The proposed Project would conduct river rehabilitation activities at
four locations downstream of the recently constructed Hocker Flat
channel rehabilitation project at Junction City, California. Project
implementation will promote the alluvial processes necessary for
restoration and maintenance of salmonid habitat in the Trinity River,
which will be accomplished by re-contouring the bank and floodplain
features. The Project is a necessary step towards restoration of the
Trinity Rivers anadromous fishery as identified in the Interior
Secretary's December 19, 2000, Record of Decision for the Trinity River
Mainstem Fishery Restoration Environmental Impact Statement.

The EA/DEIR is available for a 45-day public review and comment period.
It is online at: http://www.trrp.net/ - select Canyon Creek Complex. The
document is available for review at the Trinity River Restoration
Program Office, 1313 South Main Street, Weaverville, and the Trinity
County Library, 211 North Main Street, Weaverville.
