Coastal Ecosystems Institute of Northern California will prepare construction design, environmental and permit application documents for the Cochran Creek Fish Passage and Channel Restoration project on Fay Slough in Humboldt Couny and deliver implementation-ready designs for restoration and enhancement activities that will improve critical habitat for threatened salmonids and other wildlife, restore fish passage between Cochran Creek and Humboldt Bay, and protect working lands from frequent flooding. The project will plan, design and analyze enhancement of 1,000 feet of Cochran Creek and 2,100 feet of Quail Slough, and restoration of 5 acres of tidal wetlands on agricultural land. The lower reach of Cochran Creek was historically a transitional area from freshwater aquatic habitats to estuarine habitat typical of low-lying areas along the Humboldt Bay bottomlands.
