East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) completed construction of an 0.2-acre off-channel basin to provide a salmon nursery along the banks of the Mokelumne River, with funding from the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Excavated gravel from the basin was added to a shallow area in the Mokelumne River for spawning gravel. © Rich Hanner
