Project: East Creek Restoration Project

Description: The Project will restore hydrologic function to the 118-acre East Creek meadow in the Mountain Meadows area of Lassen County. Using a near-complete channel fill approach, with the majority of borrow sites located off-channel, funding will be use to raise the base level in the meadow, restore floodplain connectivity, reduce sediment discharge, and reverse the current trend of erosion and drying of meadow habitat.

Reference Number: 3600BP1896052

Implemented By: Plumas Corporation

Objective: The specific objectives of this Project are to restore the hydrologic function and improve wet meadow habitat in East Creek meadow by restoring floodplain connectivity. Additionally, the Project will contribute to the Sierra Meadows Restoration and Research Partnership (SMRRP) understanding of carbon sequestration in restored meadows and pilot the Sierra Meadows Wetland and Riparian Area Monitoring Plan(SM-WRAMP) Methodology.
