    Description

    A cooperative erosion control project was initiated in 1985 for the North Fork Feather River watershed in California's northern Sierra Nevada due to widespread accelerated erosion. Resulting sedimentation problems have impacted fish, wildlife and livestock resources, and have created operational concerns for hydroelectric facilities located downstream. In response, concerned groups met to develop a restoration plan. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed and a Coordinated Resources Management Planning Committee was formed to facilitate the planning and implementation process. The watershed restoration program was initiated with a small demonstration project that was implemented in Red Clover Creek. The objective was to demonstrate structural and nonstructural methods that reduce erosion, restore riparian vegetation, and improve habitat for fish and wildlife, and to develop a planning process for future projects. A 4-year monitoring program was initiated to provide data for a cost and benefit analysis. The planning process, improvement measures, and some preliminary monitoring results are presented.
