DESCRIPTION
This action will aim to restore floodplain connectivity, riparian processes, and instream habitat conditions. The primary mechanism for past channel incision has been removal of instream roughness due to loss of instream wood and impairment to riparian processes. Restoration actions should focus on restoring the riparian forest conditions and include targeted wood placements to increase channel complexity and restore natural stream grade. Properties within the stream corridor should be dedicated to maintenance and provision of habitat-forming processes. Landowner negotiations should consider opportunities to establish conservation easements and/or land acquisition to facilitate restoration in the stream corridor. Key parcels intersecting the preliminary corridor boundary in this segment include 10 parcels totaling 6.5 acres (5 along David Road and 5 along Taylor Road) with an assessed value of $1.6 M per 2012 tax records. Additional negotiation should focus on opportunities to provide alternative access to property on the north side of the creek and removing the existing driveway crossing. The property along the south side of the channel (right bank) includes low- lying areas on the south side of David Road that could provide opportunities for floodplain connectivity and off-channel habitat.
