Grantee will implement water conservation measures and alternative water

sourcing for the Alliance Redwoods Conference Grounds, eliminating direct

surface water diversion from Dutch Bill Creek and reducing overall diversion by

90%, from an average of 2.8 million gallons per May-October dry season to

300,000 gallons, all of which will be sourced from sidehill wells. The project

identified and prioritized through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF)

- funded Russian River Water Resources Coho Partnership and developed

through CDFW, FRGP grant P1730403, will increase dry season flows in Dutch

Bill Creek by at least 0.05 cubic feet per second (cfs).

Project Benefit    

The project will implement a series of components, which includes

switching water sources and instituting irrigation water conservation measures to

reduce Alliance Redwoods? existing potable and non-potable water demand on

sources in the central Dutch Bill Creek watershed by 90%. Surface water diversion

from Redwood Gulch, a major Dutch Bill Creek tributary, will be eliminated.

Successful project implementation is expected to increase streamflow in Dutch Bill

Creek by at least 0.05 cfs.
