Project: Dos Rios Ranch

Description: Riparian Habitat, floodplain Land Acquisition

Reference Number: 3640P1E828

Implemented By: River Partners

Objective: This project will protect important riparian and valley floodplain habitat, provide future public use opportunities and also help enhance the Central Valley Flood Control System by protecting a large flood corridor from non-compatible development, allowing both the San Joaquin and Tuolumne Rivers room to flood in a non-damaging way. Flooding of the Property is compatible with the habitat and resource goals of this project. In terms of the entire floodplain, the project expands on approximately 1,500 acres of existing floodplain easements located directly upstream, and 6,700 acres of protected floodplain areas held by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service within the San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge.
