Project: Bullock Bend Salmonid Conservation Bank

Description: Restoration of the Bullock property enabled creation of a mitigation bank that creates floodplain on a 115-acre property along the Sacramento River (between Colusa and Verona). DWR purchased 57.5 advance mitigation credits at this bank benefitting salmonids (NMFS and CDFW), which will be used to offset impacts on salmonids from SPFC activities along the Sacramento River. Potential for Private Use dependent upon final use of the credits; more information is available from the program. Specific projects that will use the credits include: - [4/10/17] Elder Creek Channel Rehabilitation Project (3860-P1E-006); request is for 12.15 credits. DWR's Flood Maintenance Office will remove sediment from Elder Creek in Tehama County, impacting 4.05 acres of riparian habitat which requires mitigation under the federal Endangered Species Act for effects to Essential Fish Habitat for Pacific salmon. Consultations with the National Marine Fisheries Service have resulted in mitigating for this impact at a ratio of 3:1, thus creating a need for 12.15 salmonid credits from the Bullock Bend bank.
