CDFW is intending to execute a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code (# 1600-2019-0236-R5) to the project applicant, City of Escondido. The project consists of Operations and Maintenance (O&M) activities associated with the Escondido Sewer Outfall alignment necessary to ensure its safe and reliable operation and to ensure compliance with federal and state laws. Typical O&M activities include: protection and maintenance of the Outfall pipeline where it crosses Escondido Creek; repair of channel banks or bottoms where the Outfall pipeline is exposed; repair of broken culverts; removal of debris clogs from the riparian corridor, including fallen trees; periodic vegetation clearing to maintain pedestrian or vehicle access at key locations; protection or repair of cathodic protection devices (i.e., rectifiers and test stations); and maintenance of existing access roads. Certain O&M activities require removal of debris, vegetation, sediment build-up, and/or dredge and fill material within the stream.
