This study will look at the hydrology and the geomorphology of the river system. The assessment will identify and prioritize restoration opportunities. The watershed has been assessed or is in the process of being assessed from Webber Falls and the headwaters of Perazzo Creek and Cold Stream to the Sierra Valley Water Company diversion a short distance above the Independence Lake Road Bridge. This bridge, a major constriction to the river, will be replaced within two years. Properties within this watershed have been purchased by public entities or are owned by private parties willing to contribute to the restoration of the river and its surrounding meadows. The goal of this assessment is to identify root causes behind current day degradation and outline restoration actions to correct the degradation. Once this assessment is completed, it will be combined with those of Perazzo Meadows, Perazzo Canyon and Cold Stream to provide the scientific foundation for the restoration of the entire Little Truckee River within Sierra County from its headwaters to the delta at Stampede Reservoir.
