Document Description
SAA #5-2003-0053 The Operator propose to alter the streambed and bank by the hand removal of over grown riparian vegetation, primarily mulefat, within the stream channel downstream from the Sand Canyon Reservoir and spillway within Sand Canyon Creek, Orange County. Vegetation removal is necessary in this section of the stream channel to conduct scheduled routine maintenance on pipeline valves for annual inspection and exercise. All vegetation will be trimmed by hand or by hand-operated tools to within 6" to 12" above ground to minimize impacts and promote adequate regrowth. All routine maintenance will be scheduled outside the avian breeding/nesting season. All impacts are temporary. The applicant is requesting a 5-year maintenance agreement.
