DescriptionThe Trinity River Restoration Program began in 2000 with the goal of restoring the Trinity River's salmon and steelhead fisheries, which were severely degraded during the last half-century as a result of dams, water diversions under the Central Valley Project, and land-use practices such as gold mining. The restoration program, as outlined in the U.S. Department of the Interior's Record of Decision (2000), was founded to restore the fisheries by restoring features of a healthy alluvial river system, such as spring floods, river channel complexity, and gravel spawning habitat.
