Document Description
This project is under the Master Permit issued to the Santa Cruz County Resource Conservation District (RCD) to administer the Santa Cruz Countywide Permit Coordination Program, for small, environmentally beneficial projects on private lands in Santa Cruz County. The purpose of the project is to reduce the potential entry of sediments, nutrients, and pathogens into Queseria Creek from adjacent rangeland. A grassed waterway and an associated structure for water control will be installed. The grassed waterway will be located along the toe of the south west hillside. The grassed waterway will be fenced off from the rangeland activity after completion of the project and prior to the reintroduction of animals. The associated structure for water control will allow water to be conveyed underneath a crossing that will be used for entry into the livestock enclosure/pasture area. This will eliminate potential soil structure degradation (i.e. compaction) and vegetation damage that could result from traffic on saturated soil (i.e. eliminates wet crossing). The property is north of Highway 1 past the town of Davenport. The location of the project is in the flat section of the parcel adjacent to Swanton Road and directly across from the Ranch administration offices (Casa Verde). Queseria Creek borders the northern side of the project location and is a tributary to Scott Creek in the Scott Creek watershed. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2008-0429-03 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Santa Cruz County Resource Conservation District and USDA Natural Resources Conservation District.
