Eel River – South Fork Restoration Sproul Creek

Restoration Stories

Sproul Creek Low-flow Monitoring. The Salmonid Restoration Federation was recently awarded a planning grant from the Wildlife Conservation Board to conduct low-flow monitoring in Sproul Creek for three years, promote dry season storage and forbearance actions, and identify and assess the most suitable locations for flow enhancement projects. Sproul Creek is considered one of the highest priority tributaries for implementation actions to protect and restore coho salmon. The Implementation Plan will be closely integrated with past work by CalTrout and ongoing work by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the State Water Resources Control Board in the watershed, in order to identify specific projects and to enhance instream flows. Stillwater Sciences will create 65% project designs and do the initial permitting for the highest priority flow enhancement site as identified in the implementation plan. © Salmon Restoration Federation
