REDWOOD CREEK

INVESTIGATIONS

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The study is located along the lower reaches of Redwood Creek near Orick, Humboldt County, California and extends from the coast approximately 3.4 miles upstream.  The existing project was built in 1968.   San Francisco District completed an Initial Appraisal in 2005, which identified substantial changes in the study area and recommended a reconnaissance study under Section 216 of the Flood Control Act of 1970.  The study will reanalyze flood risk management needs based on a watershed systems approach to sedimentation problems and environmental restoration opportunities.  Federally Endangered Chinook and Coho salmon and Threatened steelhead trout are present in the project area.  Potential modifications to the existing Corps project will focus on restoration of estuary and lagoon habitat to facilitate fisheries recovery, and development of an environmentally sustainable project that provides a risk-based and community supported level of flood protection, with less impactful operations and maintenance requirements.  The Redwood National and State Parks, Cal Trout, National Marine Fisheries Service, and local landowners have expressed interest in the study.
