RCRCD Arundo Removal and Restoration Project to Begin on October 31, 2016

Riverside-Corona Resource Conservation District (RCRCD) will start its Arundo removal and restoration project in the Santa Ana River downstream from the Hamner Bridge with the staging of its equipment on October 28, 2016. Natures Image, the RCRCD contractor, will begin work on October 31, 2016 with the Arundo removal portion of the project in the river bed. The staging entrance area is located at the corner of Shadow Canyon at the circle northwest of Norco Drive and will start work moving through the northeast section of the project area where the Arundo is fairly dense and mostly impassable. All equipment will be staged on RCRCD land within the river. Although signs will be posted, we ask the equestrian community to be cautious when riding up stream in the Santa Ana River from the Corydon Staging Area, as noise and equipment running may spook your horse. The white lined area in the map identifies the project area. Work will be M-F from 7AM to 3PM. No contract work will be done on the weekends.
