Subject: THP 1-15-042 SON – “Dogwood,” Reopened Public Comment Period

Date: November 26, 2017

Friends of the Gualala River (FoGR) is a non-profit, grassroots watershed protection association formed to share common concerns and research regarding the welfare of the Gualala River, its estuary and habitat. FoGR’s goal is to protect the Gualala River watershed and the species that rely on it. Please submit this letter for the Dogwood THP file as resubmitted after the court remanding of the approval of the original submission.

Baseline conditions for cumulative effects analysis on listed species have changed substantially since the original THP was written and submitted. High water flows of the winter 2015-2016 season have changed fish habitat, sediment deposition, and have affected wetlands and special status plants. The pre-injunction harvesting done to date of portions of the THP with its floodplains operations using large equipment has added to the impacts of the high water events . . .
