Streambed Alteration Agreement Concerning San Felipe Creek
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The operator proposes to alter the stream to eradicate tamarisk (Tamarix sp.) within approximately 45.0 acres of the streambed and floodway of San Felipe Creek. There are two eradication areas, a 14-acre area immediately downstream of the creek bridge at Scissor Crossing, and a 31.0-acre area immediately upstream from the bridge. All work will be conducted between October 1 and March 15 to avoid any potential impacts to the least Bell's vireo and southwestern willow flycatcher, which have been documented in the vicinity of the project site. All tamarisk removal will be completed using hand tools. No heavy mechanized equipment will be used. Initial eradication will be followed up in subsequent years by routine maintenance (i.e., removal of any new tamarisk growth). SAA# 1600-2005-0457-R5
