Cold Creek/High Meadow Ecosystem Restoration ( F113 )

This Lake Tahoe Restoration Act project funded the final design and implementation of the Cold Creek High Meadows Stream Channel and Floodplain Restoration Project. A total of 10,500 feet of stream channel and 100 acres of floodplain were restored.

 
In 2010, the Forest Service constructed new channels, installed grade-control structures made of boulders, and constructed six acres of associated inset floodplain into the meadow surface.  In 2011, restored areas were irrigated to allow vegetation to re-establish. In 2012, in-channel wood structures were constructed along the East Fork tributary, stream flow was diverted from the old channels and introduced into the new channels, and the old channels were filled. As a result, an additional 94 acres of floodplain were hydrologically re-connected to the resulting channel network in high Meadows. Additionally, eight acres of standing dead lodgepole pine was removed from the edge of the meadow. SNPLMA allocated funding was $1,899,989.
