The Project goals are to improve salmonid habitat by increasing dry season in-stream flows and increasing connectivity of Redwood Creek to the floodplain and various off-channel rearing habitats, and to retain water in the watershed. The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy (Parks Conservancy), in partnership with the California Department of Parks and Recreation (State Parks) is currently collecting baseline data to understand Redwood Creek’s hydrology, including surface water and groundwater interaction, geomorphology, and the alluvial aquifer. Building on this work, a Site Analysis Report will synthesize baseline data, develop hydrologic models, and define the Project’s reach in terms of Site Analysis Metrics (SAMs) of hydrology, geomorphology, habitat, and construction. Next, a Feasibility Study will use the SAMs to analyze the benefits and costs of three design alternatives.
