Project: Elk River Recovery: Estuary Feasibility Study and Conceptual Design

Description: Grant to California Trout, Inc. to conduct baseline studies and subsequent conceptual design planning for the tidally influenced and estuarine reaches of the lower Elk River to address current impairments which negatively affect critical coho salmon habitat opportunities and exacerbate winter flooding events. The conceptual designs developed under this project will explore options for winter flood flow routing and floodplain connectivity opportunities, protection of working ranching lands, and the restoration of estuarine and tidal marsh habitat for the benefits of listed salmonids.
