Dotta Canyon Project (1988/90)
Eight erosion control rock drop dam structures were built on Dotta Creek downstream from Dotta Dam, which flows into Indian Creek by way of Red Clover Creek. The land owner built the project with design help from the Soil Conservation Service (now Natural Resources Conservation Service) and Plumas Corporation. Loyalton High School students seeded, fertilized and planted willows at the project site. Sponsored by the landowner, with construction funding of $9,545 from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, $8,000 from Pacific Gas & Electric Company, $3,500 from the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Services (ASCS) Agricultural Conservation Program, and $3,500 from the owner. ASCS and the landowner each contributed $2,650 for fencing for a total project cost of $30,200.
