Restoration work begins on Angora Creek

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit will begin post Angora Fire restoration work on Angora Creek this week. The project will enhance approximately two miles of tributary stream channel pools, through strategic placement of downed logs to prevent future channel erosion and improve aquatic habitat for fish and amphibians.

Project work on these small channels will be completed by hand crews using dead and downed logs from the adjacent forest to replace logs that were lost next to the creek during the fire. No heavy equipment will be used, but chainsaw work will occur where needed. No live trees will be cut. Work is expected to be finished by the end of September.

For more information about the project, contact Craig Oehrli at (530) 543-2681.
