The applicant proposes three activities: 1.) Install a permanent steel bridge over a Class I watercourse (Kohute Gulch) along an existing seasonal road at crossing location #16 (see road map in timber harvest plan). Bridge abutments will be located outside of the watercourse's channel, and will be made of concrete or large rock. Abutments will be constructed using an excavator, crawler, tractor and/or backhoe. A crane will be used to place the bridge on the abutments. One alder, one willow, several Douglas fir seedlings, and some ferns will be removed during the bridge construction. 2.) Replace existing permanent culverts over Class II watercourse along existing seasonal road at crossing locations #2 and #3. At crossing #2, an existing 30-inch culvert will be replaced by a new permanent 36-inch culverts positioned side-by-side. Perched fill near the outlet of the culvert will be moved back to increase bank stability. At crossing #3, an existing 24-inch culvert will be replaced by a new 36-inch permanent culvert. An excavator, tractor, and/or backhoe will be used to remove and install culverts. As these permanent culvert crossings are existing crossings, very little soil, sand, gravel, or rock will be removed or displaced. 3.) A 0.10-acre man-made pond will be drained to improve slope stability. The pond will be drained slowly, after which an excavator, crawler tractor, and/or bakchoe will be used to breach the pond banks. After the pond has been drained, the earthen dam at the leading edge of the pond will be pulled back from the more unstable slopes, and the soil (approximately 10 cubic yards) will be spread on the more stable portions of the area away from any watercourse. The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement 2001-0851, pursuant to Section 1603 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Mr. Jeff Longcrier, North Coast Resource Management.
