Project: Tenmile Creek Conservation and Restoration Pilot Planning Project

Description: Salmonid fish habitat conditions in Tenmile Creek, a tributary to the South Fork Eel River, are deteriorating due depleted surface flows, excess sediment supply, elevated summer water temperatures, and poor riparian conditions. To address these conditions, the Eel River Recovery Project (ERRP) prepared the Tenmile Creek Watershed Conservation Action Plan. The three main goals of the project include: 1) Bringing the Tenmile Creek watershed community together to develop water conservation strategies, following the methodology successfully used in the upper Mattole River (the pilot of which was funded by the Conservancy). 2) Restoring riparian zones in the Tenmile Creek basin to create living stream banks to prevent erosion and provide shade. 3) Reducing erosion in the Tenmile Creek watershed.
