Watershed Management

The RCDTC participates in several watershed-level collaborative groups to plan and implement watershed restoration projects to improve habitat, water quality and quantity, biodiversity, forest health, and more. Projects include in-stream, riparian, upland, and meadow restoration, forest management, and erosion control.

Watershed Assessments and Management Plans 

Tehama East Watershed Assessment and Management Plan

This project prepared a watershed assessment and atlas for eastern Tehama County, gathering and assimilating existing information on the physical, cultural, and demographic characteristics of the Tehama East watersheds. While the final publication is primarily a report on the conditions of the watersheds, it is also a tool to educate and prioritize future projects.

Tehama West Watershed Assessment and Management Plan

This project prepared a watershed assessment for western Tehama County, which identified the physical, biological, and human processes and features found within the assessment study area. The mission of the Tehama West Watershed Assessment was to gather this data and ultimately serve as a conditions report to be used as an educational tool and guide for prioritizing future watershed projects.
