Document Description
In support of a multi-agency project to understand the hydrodynamics, water quality, and fish movement in the South and Central Delta, the USGS and DWR have proposed to install additional flow monitoring stations. In order to monitor flows, the USGS will need to drive pilings to mount the necessary equipment. At locations where an existing structure does not existing for housing the electronic equipment, a small box will be mounted either on the piling or at a secure location adjacent to the piling. Small boat s will be utilized for connecting the monitoring equipment to the piling structure and for running the cables between the equipment box and the monitoring equipment to the piling.

Reasons for Exemption
The Department of Fish and Game believes that the project is exempt under Title 14, Division 6, Chapter 3, Section 15303, because it involves the installation of a limited number of small, new structures. In the case where a structure already exists at a proposed location, no piling will need to be installed. The project activities are within the approved work windows to protect sensitive fish species and nesting raptors.
