“to restore and maintain the Trinity River’s anadromous fishery resources… [by] …rehabilitating the river itself”
– U.S. Department of Interior, Record of Decision, 2000

WELCOME

TRRP is a multi-agency program with eight Partners forming the Trinity Management Council (TMC), plus numerous other collaborators.

The TRRP implements the 2000 Department of Interior (DOI) Record of Decision, which directs DOI to restore the fisheries of the Trinity River impacted by dam construction and related diversions of the Trinity River Division (TRD) of the Central Valley Project. Water diversions of the TRD compounded impacts to the river that occurred from gold mining and historic logging.
The main Program office is located in Weaverville, CA (contact), with various Partner offices also including staff working in the Program.

The Trinity River was designated a Wild and Scenic River in 1981.  Celebrate 50 Years of the Wild and Scenic Rivers System in 2018!

General:

  • If you haven't scrolled down lately, check out the Water Year Progression graph below.  Daily flows at Lewiston are automatically kept up-to date (both actual releases, plus estimates of what the natural flow would be without dams).  Zoom in with a click and drag of your mouse, or with 2 fingers on a cell phone screen.

Current Flows

Most data shown here are from the USGS via the waterservices site, plus the USBR and CDWR via the California Data Exchange. Data are provisional and may be recalculated before final approval. The TRRP site checks for new sub-daily values every 15 minutes and for new daily values twice per day. Note that “Full Natural Flow” is an automated estimate from CDWR of the flow that would naturally pass the Trinity Dam site if unimpeded – it is very sensitive to small variations in lake level measurements that may result in negative values when flows would naturally be low, but is more useful for storm events, snowmelt, and averages over longer times. The graphic for water released to the Trinity River versus the Central Valley tends to show higher values for the river ​until summer, when water exports ​to CVP ​typically increase.
