Document Description
The CDFG has issued an Agreement Regarding Proposed Stream Alteration (SAA#6-2001-263) ("agreement") to the Orange County Flood Control District ("applicant") in conjunction with the applicant's proposal to alter the stream in order to construct flood control improvements to provide flood protection to areas susceptible to floods ranging from 100-year to 190-year frequencies within San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange Counties. The project features include Norco Bluffs toe stabilization, structural improvements within Prado Dam and Basin, and flood control improvements downstream of Prado Dam in Reach 9 of the Santa Ana River. Approximately 52.6 acres of riparian habitats will be directly destroyed or disturbed as a result of the construction of the project, 30.6 acres permanently impacted and 22.0 acres temporarily. Impacts to the stream that are designated as non-riparian habitats include areas with Arundo, unvegetated soft bottom, and unvegetated perennial stream, and a total 45.4 acres (23.9 acres permanent, and 21.5 acres temporary impacts). Permanent impacts to non-riparian impacts are as follows: 11.5 acres of Arundo, 9.0 acres of perennial stream, 3.4 acres of unvegetated soft-bottom. Temporary impacts to non-riparian impacts are as follows: 15.8 acres of Arundo, 4.2 acres of perennial stream, and 1.5 acres of unvegetated soft-bottom.
