Riprap was used to help armor banks on the Black property in a project sponsored by the Siskiyou RCD. Willows were planted behind each rock structure to aid in stabilizing banks as well. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, California Department of Fish and Game and the Wildlife Conservation Board funded this project jointly.

Project on the Black property to restore the riparian zone of the Scott River and to prevent further bank erosion. The scour pockets around the deflectors create good fish habitat. The small sized bed materials allow the holes to be scoured more easily than in upper valley reaches where the bed is course.
