Welcome to the Tauhindauli Park and Trail Home Page

Ecological restoration activities proposed for the project will focus primarily on the Sacramento River floodplain, a small unnamed stream and approximately two acres of meadow west and north of the substation. The goals of floodplain restoration are to restore the topography to approximate historic floodplains along the river and to re-establish associated riparian woodland vegetation. Floodplain restoration will occur at two sites within the project area. At the upstream site, an existing levee will be relocated and the grade of the adjacent meadow will be lowered. This work will compensate for historic floodplain loss, when the river channel was moved to accommodate railroad realignment in the 1930's. At the downstream site, fill material will be removed from the historic floodplain between the I-5 and Dunsmuir Avenue bridges.
