A MMWD project aimed at improving coho salmon and steelhead habitat at five sites in Lagunitas Creek within National Park Service (NPS) lands managed by Point Reyes National Seashore is entering the Environmental Assessment (EA) phase in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
The public comment period for the EA is open through Monday, January 11, 2016.
Because the proposed locations for habitat enhancement are within National Park Service (NPS) lands in western Marin County, the proposed project requires NPS approval through a public NEPA planning process.
MMWD’s proposed project seeks to stabilize and restore Lagunitas Creek salmon populations by increasing the winter carrying capacity of the creek by modifying creek hydrology and enhancing and restoring existing floodplain and instream habitat.
