Sediment Removal as a Means of Stream Habitat Improvement by J. Griffith and S. Grunder
After sediment removal project – although sediment removal may have potential in providing additional habitat for large trout in streams, more data must be gathered before judging the cost-effectiveness and feasibility of the technique. This study will continue to evaluate changes throughout the coming winter and summer, and additional areas will be dredged in 1983. Spring flows in 1983 may refill the dredged area with sediment, and this will be monitored closely.
