Project: Lagunitas Creek Floodplain and Riparian Enhancement Design

Description: The project will restore juvenile coho wintering habitat by removing abandoned housing developments and structures in the floodplain. It will develop design plans and environmental compliance documents for the removal of berms, levees, concrete retaining walls, and roughly 50,000 yards of non-native landfill. Designs will also be prepared to re-contour the floodplain to lower elevations and create off-channel habitat features that are hydrologically connected to the mainsteam. Planning documents will also cover the removal of invasive vegetation and re-establishment of native riparian redwood forests through the project reach, the placement of numerous large woody debris structures in instream channels to improve hydrologic floodplain function and cover for salmonid habitat, and the propagation of 1,500 locally-sourced native plants that will be planted at the site following the floodplain restoration.
