Merced River Salmon Habitat Enhancement Project - Phase IV

Background

Phase IV (Upper Western Stone Reach) of the Merced River Salmon Habitat Enhancement Project (MRSHEP) is located on the Merced River from river mile 41.5 to 42, just downstream of the Highway 59 bridge.

This reach is characterized by a deep, relatively narrow section of river, most of which is virtually devoid of a floodplain and riparian communities. It is adjacent to a gravel mining operation.
