Mokelumne River Restoration III

Restoration Stories


East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) has been conducting restoration work in the lower Mokelumne River since the mid-1990s. Over 60,000 cubic yards of gravel have been added to the river resulting in 50% of redds being constructed in enhanced habitats. Rearing habitat has been improved through the construction of side-channels adjacent to spawning areas. Much of the restoration work is guided by the Lower Mokelumne River Partnership, which includes representatives from USFWS Anadromous Fish Restoration Program, CDFW, NMFS and numerous stakeholders within the watershed.
