The stretch of the Napa River that runs from Lodi Lane downstream approximately 5 miles to Zinfandel Lane.
Project will eradicate Arundo donax along a 5 mile stretch of the Napa River. The Napa River has had removal projects from it's headwaters above Calistoga downstream 25 miles to Oak Knoll Rd. except for this last 5 mile section.
In an effort to reduce potential flooding along the Napa River and restore more of the native riparian habitat to increase fisheries health, the Napa County Flood Control District is attempting to eradicate Arundo donax from it's watershed. Arundo is an invasive bamboo-like weed that has invaded waterways throughout the west and has, in many cases, completely choked out entire rivers and streams and decimated the native environmental habitat in it's wake. Napa County is trying to take control and eliminate Arundo before it becomes a completely overwhelming project.
