NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Fine sediment obstructing the diversion intake and pool will be removed using conventional excavation equipment, then hauled to a designated upland storage site on private or U.S. Forest Service lands. A stream flow bypass system will be installed to allow unwatering of the diversion pool, so excavation can be performed in the dry. The work will be performed under a California Department of Fish and Game 1601 Agreement.
