Project developed 100% design plans for a large wood (LW) project across a 1.1 mile reach of Kenny Creek. Each LW structure was designed based on the conditions at each feature site. The LW structures will benefit all life stages of salmonids by providing shelter complexity and cover, pool depths, velocity refugia, and the sorting and aggradation of spawning substrate.

Project Benefit    

The Project will increase Large wood in Kenny Creek, as well as increase habitat complexity, cover, pool depth, velocity refugia, and spawning substrate availability, to the benefit of all life stages of Coho Salmon. The Project is necessary because it will lead to increased Large wood in Kenny Creek where it is lacking.

          Description and scope of the plan implemented
          The objective of this project is to develop LWD structure designs on Kenny Creek, a coho bearing stream, in the South Fork Eel River. Engineers and restorationist will assess the project reach and determine beneficial location for LWD, appropriate amounts of LWD and stable structure design. Task SONCC-SFER. will be addressed when the design plans are implemented.
