Description    


The objective of this project is to improve the quality and quantity of habitat available to salmonids in Sproul Creek. A total of 71 large wood (LW) structures containing 414 pieces of LW, including 117 key pieces will be constructed along 2.9 miles of Sproul Creek. This project will increase the frequency of flood-plain and side channel inundation, increase pool and flatwater shelter, increase pool and flatwater depths, provide velocity refugia, sort substrate, and aggrade the channel. Following construction, native trees and plants will be planted in disturbed areas.

Project Benefit    


This project will benefit salmonids by increasing the availability of velocity refugia,

increasing instream and off channel shelter, and by improving spawning substrate availability.
