Upper York Creek Dam Removal, Sec 205



UPPER YORK CREEK DAM REMOVAL AND RESTORATION
CONTINUING AUTHORITY, SECTION 206

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

Upper York Creek Dam is located approximately 60 miles north of San Francisco, in the City of St. Helena, Napa County, California. It is an earthen dam built around the turn of the 20th century, and its reservoir has served as a water supply for the City of St. Helena. The proposed project would create and restore approximately two acres of channel, including riparian and upland habitat, near the dam. It would also reconnect approximately two miles of stream-corridor habitat and associated upland habitat, improving both water quality and rearing, resident, and migratory habitats for Federally listed (threatened and endangered) species.
