Document Description
DFW is intending to execute a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code (# 1600-2013-0283-R5) to the project applicant, Craig Smith of MKL Development. The project proposes to develop 209 acres by constructing 802 single family units, a 12 acre school, a 9 acre park and 18 acres of commercial space which will be phased over several years. The land is presently an agricultural field for row crops. The 2,500-long, 4-wide (at the high water mark), agricultural drainage on the north side of the property, directly adjacent to Highway 166 is proposed to be filled with native soil and converted to an underground drainage following widening of the highway and installation of two 24-inch culverts. These culvers are designed to convey off site and street runoff to a proposed 3.0 acre detention basin (North Detention Basin) located in the northeast corner of the property. The second drainage which bisects the property, will be relocated and designed to drain into two detention basins, (East and Est basins), located in the southwest corner of the property, totaling 13 acres, which will receive flows from the east portion of the development. The two basins will be connected by vegetated swale, and will be planted with native vegetation. These basins are design to function as detention basins, and as bio-swales for the street runoff before flowing back into the agricultural drainage system. The basins will have overflow only during large rain events. These drainage ditches have been maintained for years, and are sprayed to prevent any vegetation from becoming established. Additional habitat will be created as a mitigation measure for this project.
