Humboldt County Resource Conservation District (HCRCD)
The Salt River Watershed Council has an on-going relationship with the Humboldt County Resource Conservation District (HCRCD) as a collaborating partner in the development of the Salt River Restoration Project.
The Humboldt County Resource Conservation District is the lead agency on this project. This project is a multi-year, multi-agency, landowner-driven endeavor that takes a holistic, watershed-wide approach to address sediment, fish passage, flooding, and drainage issues in the Salt River Watershed of Ferndale. Increasingly frequent flooding, reduced drainage capacity, and sediment deposition has negatively impacted water quality and the ability of local landowners to effectively utilize their lands for agricultural purposes.
This ecosystem-scale project includes a large tidal wetland restoration component that will create a succession of biologically rich and diverse tidal wetland habitats, including transitional wetlands and adjacent uplands as part of a sustainable estuary system.
