Document Description
The DFG is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the Project applicant, Mr. Ken Gray. The proposed Project consists of installing seven large wody debris (LWD) complexes in the Carmel River. Installation of LWD complexes will occur at locations determined by a NMFS fluvial geomorphologist and fishery biologist. Each complex will consist of a Douglas fir log ~180 to 20 ft long and a redwood root wad attached to the log. The complexes will use the designs called "digger logs," "spider logs," and "log, root wad, and boulder combinations" and will follow specifications for such structures provided in the California Salmonid Stream Habitat Restoration Manual. Comstruction equipment will access the site using existing paths, and construction will occur when the site is dry and devoid of water. The Project would provide refugia for migrating adult and juvenile steelhead, as well as for California red-legged frogs, southwestern pond turtles, and other aquatic fauna found in and near the Project site.
