Merced River Floodplain Restoration near Snelling, San Joaquin Basin, California Phase I: The applicant will partner with Santa Fe Aggregates, Inc. (SFA), an aggregate mining company with plans to remove dredger tailings down to the natural floodplain surface beginning in approximately Fiscal Year 2012 at a 600+ acre site near Snelling. SFA will leave a 100-foot wide berm of tailings along the river for their mining project. The applicant will develop the planning and environmental documents to remove and restore the 100-foot wide berm to recreate seasonally-inundated floodplain habitat along approximately 2 miles of river channel. The applicant may utilize environmental documents and hydraulic models developed for the river channel and floodplain that are being developed by SFA for their mining project. The applicant should assume that the river channel will not be realigned and that all mature native tree species will be preserved; gravel will be removed and the site will be graded; inundation channels will be created to avoid stranding juvenile fish; and that extensive revegetation with native plants will occur. SFA may provide labor and aggregate materials for this project. Processing on-site dredger tailings for floodplain restoration should minimize the costs of trucking aggregate materials and traffic impacts. It is also possible that SFA could sell dredger tailings that need to be removed to restore floodplain habitats and the proceeds could be used to offset a portion of the restoration costs. Phase I funding beginning in Fiscal Year 2008 is to develop the floodplain restoration and monitoring plans and environmental documents with input from landowners, SFA, and the local resource agencies. It is anticipated that the construction and biological monitoring phases of this project will be incrementally implemented in later phases as funding becomes available.
