Document Description
The El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) has requested $153, 466 from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy's Proposition 84 Grants Program to fund restoration design and apply for permits for Hazel Creek and Hazel Creek Campground. The restoration will include stabilizing Hazel Creek banks, removing non-native vegetation, recreating a riparian buffer zone along the creek, protecting the re-vegetated areas and creek with a 50-foot setback buffer zone and natural barriers, and constructing an all-weather safety access bridge over the creek. To accomplish the restoration of Hazel Creek, seven campsites and the associated access road will be removed, along with reconfiguring the remaining campsites according to Sly Park Recreation Area (SPRA) Master Plan standards. Two campsites will be replaced with ADA-accessible cabins. Native vegetation in the campground will be re-established by installing barriers, providing access controls, and installing interpretive signage to protect native habitats and provide education opportunities and safety information. A new bridge over Hazel Creek will be added to provide emergency access to the back of Sly Park and to provide a dedicated access for bicycles and horses to cross the creek without causing impacts to Hazel Creek and the water quality of Jenkinson Lake. The combined restoration of Hazel Creek and the Hazel Creek Campground area consists of approximately 3.5 acres and will implement a part of the SPRA Master Plan, which has been adopted by the EID Board of Directors and permitted by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors.
