Document Description
In 2004, the EIR/EIS for the Lower Santa Ynez River Fish Management Plan and Cachuma Project Biological Opinion for southern steelhead trout was recorded. The EIR/EIS was prepared by the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board and United States Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior. An Addendum was prepared to add a third alternative fish passage barrier fix for the nine low flow road crossings on Quiota Creek, a tributary to the Santa Ynez River near the town of Santa Ynez. The new alternative is for a bottomless-arched culvert which has the same or less environmental impact as the two approved alternatives (bridge or rock riffle fishway) in the EIR/EIS. Pursuant to CEQA guidelines and since no greater environmental impact will be associated with this alternative, no public review is necessary.
