Document Description
CDFG is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement (Agreement) pursuant to Section 1602 (SAA # R5-2003-0156) of the fish and Game Code to the project applicant, City of Laguna Niguel. The applicant proposes to alter the streambed and banks through the implementation of the Sulphur Creek Ecosystem Restoration Project, consisting of approximately 8.6 acres of floodplain habitat restoration and up to 6 acres of transitional and upland native habitat along approximately 1,950 linear feet of Sulphur Creek between Crown Valley Community Park and South Orange County Wastewater Authority Treatment Plant. The floodplain restoration shall consist of removing various fill material from the inner and outer floodplain and re-grading the exposed surfaces to increase hydraulic connectivity with the active channel. In addition, an existing concrete dip crossing will be converted to a grade control structure, with a span bridge or footbridge constructed above the floodplain. An existing sedimentation basin will be excavated to provide for riparian habitat. Excavated materials will be removed from the Sulphur Creek floodplain and hauled offsite or deposited in a 3.1-acre stockpile area located west of Sulphur Creek.
