SWS 2020 Top Projects - Carr Fire Recovery Project

SWS 2020 Top Projects - Carr Fire Recovery Project

In this week’s video, SWS Managing Editor Katie Johns is joined by Ross Perry, project manager for the Western Shasta Resource Conservation District, to talk about the #1 2020 Top Project – the Carr Fire Recovery Project. 

Following the Carr Fire in Shasta County, California, this project aimed to reduce sediment transport to stream systems and protect waterways critical to the Sacramento River Fishery. This project utilized two treatments: 1) manual hand application and 2) hydraulic application. Overall, tens-of-thousands of tons of sediment were prevented from discharging into local watersheds by the recovery efforts, and more than 500 local landowners benefited from erosion mitigation efforts on their property.
