Elder Creek Channel Rehabilitation Project

The Flood Maintenance Office's Sutter Yard proposes to restore channel capacity through removal of four miles of vegetation and sediment from Elder Creek that is part of the Sacramento Flood Control Project near the town of Gerber in Tehama County.

Project activities would include removal of vegetation and sediment, disposal and haul of removed materials, re-vegetation with native grass species and erosion control. Channel maintenance activities are required to maintain design flows, ensure proper water conveyance, and allow adequate inspection of the channel.
