Mattole River Restoration VI

Restoration Stories

Mattole River storage tanks

On McKee Creek, tributary to the Mattole River, up to 100,000 gallons of water will be stored in tanks purchased and installed with the assistance of The Conservation/Technical assistance program grant from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Sanctuary Forest Inc., and additional cost-share provided by Bella Vista Foundation. Water use restrictions and forbearance will allow more water to remain in the stream during critical life history stages of endangered salmon and steelhead. McKee Creek is a high priority tributary in the headwaters of the Mattole River with key spawning and rearing habitat. Learn More © CDFW
