Project: Advancing Restoration Strategies for Hydrologic Connectivity in Williams Creek

Description: The Project will advance restoration planning design to 30% and complete CEQA process to restore the capacity and hydrologic conveyance of the Williams Creek channel to re-establish ecological processes that benefit fish and other native species, improve riparian and wetland corridor elements, improve flow to the Salt River, improve water quality and drainage efficiency across the floodplain, maximize sediment transport capacity in the channel, and improve instream channel habitat to 6.3 miles of historical fish habitat.

Reference Number: 3600BQ1996019

Implemented By: Humboldt County Resource Conservation District

Objective: Specific objectives of this Project are to: 1. Engage the community and other stakeholders through coordination and community meetings. 2. Advance Williams Creek design plans to a 30% level. 3. Perform informative environmental and supporting studies in support of CEQA documentation and compliance. 4. Develop an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for CEQA compliance to support a more robust design plan.
