Stop Stanford University’s flawed Habitat Conservation Plan
This plan includes re-routing our creek into a 2000-foot long channel!!
Dec 21, 2012 — - Despite statements to the contrary, this plan includes destructive Searsville Dam sediment management "activities" without adequately addressing the negative impact of Searsville Dam itself. Our October 25 2012 letter (below) to the agencies clearly shows that Stanford’s misguided proposal to re-route Corte Madera Creek through a new, nearly 2000-foot long and 50-foot wide artificially constructed channel is a misguided Searsville sediment management activity. The letter clearly shows that the proposed stream re-routing and channel excavation project would harm listed species and habitat both at the excavation site and downstream, including critical habitat for steelhead trout.
