Document Description
CDFG is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement pursuant to Section 1602 (SAA # 1600-2004-0517-R5) of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Ms. Nancy Palmer of the City of Laguna Niguel, Public Works. The applicant proposes to alter the streambed and banks through the temporary impacts to approximately 0.62 acre of jurisdictional water and wetlands in order to remove concrete v-ditches from Sulphur Creek and grade a new active channel and floodplain. The proposed project as designed will more than double the functional capacity of the creek by creating approximately 1.51 acres of streambed/wetland habitat and will restore/enhance approximately 4.81 acres of riparian habitat and enhance approximately 8.63 acres of existing riparian habitat. Future maintenance for the creek channel and adjacent restored area would be taken over by the City. Because the project's design will compensate for impacts to areas subject to the Department's jurisdiction, no specific habitat mitigate was required other then implementing the project's habitat restoration plan. The proposed project is located at the Upper Sulpher Creek, tributary to Aliso Creek in the City of Laguna Niguel, Orange County, California.
