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. In-stream flow features designed to focus flow energy away from the channel boundaries will be installed to protect the bank and the road while enhancing salmonid habitat. The design of the three (3) in-stream features are rock and log j-hook designs. A layer of footer rock will provide stability for the vane that extends from near the bed elevation at the apex, up to a bank full elevation where the legs of each vane tie into the bank. Existing downed redwood logs will be used to offer longevity to the structures. Each log vane will be dead-manned into the channel bank and secured to the bed using multiple duckbill anchors and secured using boulders cabled to rocks or logs. One or two redwood rootwads (depending on the rootwad size) will be incorporated at the end of the vane leg. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2008-0430-03 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.
