River Restoration Subject Of Public Meeting

Some federal agencies are planning to make changes to a portion of the Trinity River in Lewiston. The proposed project will be done next year on 110 acres of public and private land near the Bucktail River Access. The idea is to reconnect the floodplain with the river by building side channels and wetland complexes to improve Salmon and Steelhead habitat. The construction will be done with natural rock, wood and native plants. Public comments are welcomed at a meeting Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30PM at the Moose Lodge on Lewiston Turnpike Road.
