Project: Outlet Creek Streamflow Enhancement Project

Description: A planning grant to Trout Unlimited, Inc. for a cooperative project with PG&E and Storesund Engineering to evaluate the feasibility and application of a number of tools to enhance streamflows including: (1) determining when and where streamflow conditions appear to be creating harmful conditions for salmonids in Ryan, Baechtel, and Broaddus creeks and where the most promising reaches for enhancing streamflows are located, (2) estimate the quantity of flow enhancement feasible in each reach; and identify the benefits that enhancements would provide to steelhead and salmon, and (3) work with landowners to identify opportunities whereby water users will agree to forgo or modify their summer water diversions, dedicate that water for instream uses through a 1707 dedication (or other applicable agreement), and implement water management practices such as conservation, efficiency, rainwater, or wet season storage to benefit wildlife.
