Trinity River Restoration IV

Restoration Stories

Trinity river project

Deep Gulch and Sheridan Creek Channel Rehabilitation Projects, completed in fall 2017, enhance the existing habitat, increase the functional floodplain area, and protect existing high-use spawning riffles.  Work included reducing the encroachment of riparian vegetation; placement of large wood material; physical alteration of alluvial features (e.g., placement or excavation of alluvial material to construct floodplains and side channels); construction of large wood hydraulic and habitat structures; and removal or replacement of riparian and upland vegetation at strategic locations. Revegetation efforts are now ongoing. This is a Trinity River Restoration Program project, lead by the US Bureau of Reclamation and US Bureau of Land Management. © Trinity River Restoration Program
