Title: Cold Stream Preliminary Survey
Funding Period: Summer 2010
Sponsor: William Copren / Cindy Nobel – Feather River Chapter, Trout Unlimited
Location: Cold Stream tributary into the Little Truckee River, Sierra County (CA)
Requested Amount: $5000.00. Funded Amount: $5000.00.
Strategy: Protect / Restore

Goals & Objectives:
A preliminary survey of the Cold Stream that flows into the Truckee River would be a starting point of a larger plan to better understand and develop conservation strategies to restore the watershed that  spans 40 miles of up-stream cold water habitat to support the reintroduction of LCT. This one part of a much larger project that includes nearly 100 miles of cold water stream habitat.

Expected Results & Benefits:
The preliminary survey will result in: i) the collection of existing habitat data, ii) the formation of LTR working group; and ii) a LTR work plan.
2. The LTR work plan will determine specific benefits, beyond enhanced recreation, increased flood control and improved water quality to northern Nevada by understanding the outcomes of the larger project that will address found issues in the planning process.

Other Stakeholders:
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service, The United States Geological Survey, The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Nevada Conservancy, Truckee River Watershed Council, The Tahoe-Sierra Integrated Regional Water Management Group and United States Forest Service – Sierraville and Truckee Ranger Districts are among others.
