The project will develop construction plans with input from landowners and the local resource agencies, obtain all necessary environmental permits, and implement the final plan to restore both the channel and floodplain habitats that have been degraded by dredger mining, particularly in the 15-mile-long reaches below the La Grange Dam on the Tuolumne River (Stanislaus County) or Crocker-Huffman Dam on the Merced River (Merced County), California. The applicant?s team should have expertise in fluvial geomorphology, engineering, fishery biology, and botany. If possible, partnerships should be developed with aggregate mining companies that would sell excess dredger tailings as compensation for gravel processing and restoration construction. Project sites should be of sufficient size to restore at least 0.25 miles of river channel and a floodplain width of at least 300 feet. The project will probably be funded and implemented in phases: Phase 1 consisting of planning, outreach, and permitting for approximately $100,000; Phase 2 consisting of baseline monitoring, easement appraisal and potential acquisition, construction, as-built surveys, and revegetation for approximately $2,500,000; and Phase 3 consisting of post-project monitoring and revegetation maintenance for approximately $400,000 for three years. The total estimated program cost is approximately $3,000,000 and the entire project may require up to 10 years to fully implement.
