Project: Water Management Plan for Utilization of Humboldt County Contract Water

Description: This project will lead to the availability of approximately 50,000 acre-feet of stored water in Trinity Reservoir for annual releases into the upper Trinity River at Lewiston Dam. The Water Management Plan will guide annual decision making on flow releases over a 25-year planning period for beneficial uses and define the proposed action for future environmental review and consultation. Project goals include: create missing elements of the natural flow regime, enhance habitat quality for fish and wildlife, improve ecosystem health, increase opportunities for ocean and river salmon fishing and provide water for water quality enhancement.
