The Truckee River Watershed Council is seeking construction bids for the Jammer Chair Riparian and Aspen Restoration Project.

The Jammer Chair Project site history includes a series of fills and road developments encroaching on identified riparian areas, channels and floodplain. The encroachment has altered natural flow patterns and has degraded the drainages and associated flood plain.

The purpose of the Jammer Chair Riparian and Aspen Restoration Project (Jammer Chair Project) is to restore the hydrologic processes to the project area.

The project work is described in detail in the attached bid document: Request for Bid (with Amendment 8/28/15)- Jammer Chair Riparian and Aspen Restoration* [Links removed]
