Merced River Ranch Floodplain Restoration, San Joaquin Basin, California Phase I: The Merced River Ranch (MRR), a 318-acre site owned by the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG), occupies approximately 1 river mile of the Merced Rivers 7-mile dredger tailings reach (DTR), in Merced County, CA. The DTR has been severely impacted by historic gold dredger mining, which covered the floodplain in dredger tailings that are largely barren of vegetation. This project is intended to restore and create salmon spawning and rearing habitat, conserve, and revegetate riparian habitat, enhance public access, and provide interpretive opportunities. This Phase I funding (beginning in Fiscal Year 2008) is to update and complete the existing restoration and monitoring plans (75% completed), prepare current environmental documents for circulation and filing, and finalize all necessary environmental permit application and file for implementation. The plans focus on improving salmon spawning habitat through gravel augmentation and restoring approximately 60 acres of floodplain along 3,600 linear feet of river channel along both sides of the river. The applicant will partner with CDFG to finalize the channel (i.e., gravel augmentation) and floodplain restoration design and monitoring plans and environmental documents with input from local stakeholders and resource agencies. It is anticipated that the implementation/construction and biological monitoring phases of this project will be incrementally implemented in later phases as funding becomes available.
