Carmel Valley Hills Restoration Project

In 1984, restoration of eight miles of river was scheduled to be completed by MPWMD within ten years. In 1992 and 1993, the restoration of the Valley Hills reach was completed and has since been irrigated.
After re-contouring of the site and the planting of cottonwoods, willows, alders, and dogwoods, a total of 4.10 acres of riparian vegetation exist, showing a 185% increase in riparian vegetation in this reach.
