Goodrich Meadow – Goodrich Creek represents the northernmost site in this suite of Sierra meadows, and is located on private property. Upper Goodrich Meadow, owned by Shasta Forest Timberlands LLC, was restored in the summer of 2016 using a channel fill technique. Groundwater wells were installed pre-project in 2014 and groundwater level data has been collected continuously since. Goodrich Creek is a major tributary to Mountain Meadows Reservoir (PG&E) and flows through several un-restored meadow complexes prior to reaching the reservoir. The Goodrich Creek monitoring station was located at the downstream end of McKenzie Meadows, a large un-restored meadow complex that is being considered for restoration in 2-3 years. Drainage area above the monitoring station is approximately 34.6 square miles and receives 35.1” mean annual precipitation (USGS StreamStats, 2018). 2017 Data Collection Tables.
