Napa River Rutherford Reach Restoration Project

In 2002, the Rutherford Dust Society Board of Directors voted unanimously to empower a subcommittee, the Rutherford Dust (Napa River) Restoration Team (RDRT or "our dirt"), to initiate a plan to manage and restore the river. This committee is chaired by Rutherford Dust Society board member Davie Piña, owner of Piña Vineyard Management, LLC, and includes over 25 riverside property owners. Since that date, RDRT has successfully pioneered an innovative partnership with Napa County to realize this vision. Building upon over 5 years of detailed engineering and ecological studies, a comprehensive design for the entire 4.5 mile reach was released in October of 2008 for environmental and regulatory review. Project construction is commencing with Phase 1 in July 2009, starting at the upstream boundary of the project area at the Zinfandel Lane Bridge.
