IOA Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2012 Feather River Bulletin Public comment wanted on creek restoration projects Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor aknadler@plumasnews.com Controversial watershed restoration projects will be explained to the public Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m., in the clubroom at the Indian Valley Museum in Tay- lorsviUe. Local ranchers and water rights holders garnered sup- port from county supervisors last year, so more of an effort at public outreach and a Plan B in case of unexpected water shortages are now required. As the lead organization, Plumas Corporation and the Feather River Coordinated Re- source Management group per- sonnel are seeking input for two restoration project propos- als: Last Chance Creek Phase II and Red Clover Confluence. Last Chance The Last Chance project is located east of Antelope Lake between Murdock and Willow Creek crossings and is on the Beckwourth Ranger District Proposed is restoration of floodplain function to almost eight miles of Last Chance the confluence areas of the Stone Dairy and Clark's creek tribu- taries. Red Clover The Red Clover project is lo- cated on private land east of Beckwourth. Restoration of floodplain function is also the goal with this project, which will affect 12.5 miles of down-cut chan- nels along Red Clover and three of its tributaries, in- cluding Dixie, Horton and Crocker creeks. Public process Public participation in the form of questions and com- ments about the proposed pro- jects are encouraged. The comment process can be complex with both state and federal agencies involved, though lead agencies will be involved to make it easier to understand. The Plumas County Plan- ning Department will be act- of the Plumas National Forest. ing as the lead agency for the state public comment and en- vironmental process on both projects, and the Forest Ser- vice will oversee the process for the Last Chance project. Project information for both projects is available on the management group website at feather-river-crm.org, or copies of the project proposal may be picked up at the Plumas Corpo- ration office, which is located at 550 Highway 70, next to Gansner Airport in Quincy. Contact information Public comments would be most helpful if submitted at the meeting or by Feb. 10 to one of the following: Plumas County Planning Department Director Randy Wilson at 555 Main St., Quin- cy, CA 95971.
