Phase 2A Lower of the Salt River Ecosystem Restoration Project has been completed. The construction contractor, Handford Applied Restoration and Conservation from Sonoma, California has finished their work.
The work began during the last week of July and was completed in November. Over 100,000 cubic yards of sediment was removed from the channel. Vegetation planting has begun and will continue through winter.
The coffer dam at Reas Creek has been removed. The tidal flow is now moving from the confluence of the Eel River delta to the Dillon Road Bridge.
