Present Land Use
This project is a watershed-wide modification to an existing regulatory program.
Document Description
NOTE: Document is a Draft EIR and a Draft EIS. The State lead agency, the California Department of Fish and Game, Habitat Conservation Planning, South Coast Region (Department), along with the Federal lead agency the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, Regulatory Division (Corps), have completed the Draft Program EIS/EIR for the San Diego Creek Watershed SAMP/WSAA Process. The SAMP establishes alternative (aquatic-based and watershed-specific) permitting procedures for projects within the San Diego Creek Watershed that will alter the bed, bank or channel of rivers, streams, and lakes and associated riparian habitats under the Department's jurisdiction or to discharge dredged or fill material into waters of the U.S. subject to the Corps jurisdiction. The SAMP permitting procedures will improve the Corps and the Department's capacity to evaluate such projects, as compared to the process each agency would normally follow in permitting such projects on a case-by-case basis.
