Restoration of Fluvial Process on French Gulch & Moose Creek
This talk will demonstrate the restoration on portions French and Moose Creek and how it supports the fisheries goals in the Mount Haggin WMA. The area was mined extensively resulting in large remnant tailings piles. That resulted in a confined French Creek without connection to a functioning floodplain and lack of fluvial complexity. Sinuosity of the existing stream was near 1.0 and the average floodprone width was less than 22’. At the Moose Creek site remnant mining impacts were less severe but still inhibited floodplain connection.
