Marshall Ranch Flow Enhancement Project
SRF and Stillwater Sciences have been exploring the feasibility of various streamflow enhancement opportunities in Redwood Creek, a critical tributary to the South Fork Eel River. For several years, SRF has been conducting low-flow monitoring and conducting a feasibility analysis on how to most efficiently enhance flows in Redwood Creek. SRF and Stillwater Sciences are completing designs for a 15.3 million gallon off-channel pond that would release cold-water into Redwood Creek during the long dry season. To learn more about this exciting streamflow enhancement project, please visit the project webpage where you can find a project status report, fact sheet, 90% Basis of Design report, and frequently asked questions.
The Humboldt County planning department has publicly noticed the intent to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for this project. Currently, the public comment period ends December 4. If you would like to write a letter of support for this project, please click here to see how to submit a letter to the Planning Commission.
