SRF Restoration Webinar Series
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 15.5 million gallon off-channel pond that would release cold-water into Redwood Creek during the long dry season. This project is sited on a stable terrace on the Marshall Ranch, the largest private parcel in the watershed that has been stewarded by the Marshall family since the 1800s and is now fully protected under conservation easement.
The proposed Marshall Ranch Flow Enhancement Project is being designed to significantly improve Redwood Creek dry-season conditions.
To learn more about this exciting streamflow enhancement project, please visit the project webpage and explore some of the project frequently asked questions. You can also listen to a recent KMUD interview with some of the project team on MixCloud.
2020 Annual SRF Conference Cancelled
2020 Coho Confab Cancelled Due to COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, SRF is unable to produce the Coho Confab in 2020. We are hoping to be able to produce this special event next year in the South Fork Eel River.
South Fork Eel River Low Flow Monitoring Projects
SRF has been conducting low flow monitoring in Redwood Creek in the South Fork Eel watershed since 2013. Check out our website to see project resources, the low flow trajectory, and regular updates about this project.
SRF is also conducting low flow monitoring on Sproul Creek. Click here to see a digital flipbook of photos from the West Fork of Sproul Creek.
