Sacramento River (mainstem) Restoration VI

Restoration Stories

The North Cypress Bridge Project, which started on November 7, 2016, and officially ended on January 2, 2017, created approximately 1.5 acres of new aquatic habitat. Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District provided the equipment operators who performed the work in the channels. In addition to the channels being opened, woody material was placed in the channels to provide cover from predators for the salmon. In total, over 15,500 tons of rock, sand and cobble were removed from the channels, 282 small cottonwood and willow trees were planted, and 1.5 acres of land were hydroseeded. The total cost of the project is estimated to be about $400,000. Before and after shots. Learn More © Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District
