Removal of Sediment from the North and South Fork Long Canyon Diversions
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Sediment obstructing the diversion intakes and pools, as a result of the New Year's storm of 2006, will be removed using conventional excavation equipment, then hauled to a designated upland storage site on U.S. Forest Service lands. A streamflow bypass system will be installed to allow draining of the diversion pools, so that excavation can be performed in unwatered conditions. The work will be performed under a California Department of Fish and Game 1601 Agreement, a US Army Corps Nationwide permit, a #401 Water Quality Certification, and an Eldorado National Forest Special Use Permit, which include requirements for environmental protection.
