The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement (EPIMS-RIV-18523-R6,) pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Oak Valley Development Company, or as represented as John Ohanian. The Project is on an approximately 237-acre proposed development site for commercial and industrial use as well as parking. On-site flow from streams entering the property from the north and east entering the
development site will be captured and conveyed across the site in drainage pipes to a downstream Cienega Preserve or released at one of two other dissipation structures located along Drainage A (also known as El Casco Wash) if flowing from the eastern portions of the site. The Project also includes installation of a third flow
dissipation structure from the drainage basin at the southwestern corner of the site connecting to the downstream Cienega wetland habitat. The Project will grade and fill multiple streams (identified as Drainages A, A1, A1.1, A2, A3, A4, A5, and A5.1) and place the streams in pipes to convey the flow downstream. Drainages A1 through A5.1 will be graded and filled or partially filled. Drainage A will be straightened, hardened in two places and recontoured along one segment.
