Reclamation announces public meeting for Trinity River flow and gravel
WEAVERVILLE, Calif. – The Trinity River Restoration Program, a Department
of the Interior established multi-agency program, will host a public
informational meeting to present 2019 Lewiston Dam spring restoration flow
releases and Trinity River gravel augmentation plans. TRRP staff will be
available to answer questions on the presentations.
What: 2019 Trinity River flow and gravel augmentation public meeting
Who: Trinity River Restoration Program
Where: Trinity River Restoration Program Office, 1313 S. Main Street,
When: Thursday, April 11, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
The TRRP was established to restore the ecological function and anadromous
fisheries of the Trinity River severely degraded by dams and historic
mining and logging. A 2000 Record of Decision includes five water year
types with a minimum volume of water to be released into the Trinity River
for each type. Gravel augmentation is combined with the flow releases to
replace gravel trapped by the upstream dams that is necessary for salmon
habitats. The gravel is locally supplied from the Trinity River Basin.
