Englebright Dam and Daguerre Point Dam are owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. SYRCL’s advocacy work has led to a $3M study process called the Yuba River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study. The study is an important opportunity to formalize a federal interest in projects to improve fish passage and fish habitat. The local cost share partner for the study is the Yuba County Water Agency.
SYRCL thanks the many citizens who attended public meetings about the Feasibility Study in fall of 2015, and provided comments to the Army Corps regarding the scope and priorities for the study. The next step in the process is for the Corps to provide a Draft Environmental Impact Report for comment, possibly as early as December 2016.
