Document Description
The Operator proposes to alter the streambed by repairing a damaged gabion structure located within the Wagon Wheel Creek, initially damaged during the 1998 El Nino storms. As channel flows exit the downstream side of the gabion structure, they drop into an eroded basin along the southern boundary of the creek. The project proposes to divert the channel flows to the northern boundary of the creek, allowing flows to re-enter the natural stream course. The project proposes to temporary impact 0.12 acre of jurisdictional "waters of the U.S. and State" for the gabion repair work. Mitigation for temporary impacts to the Department jurisdiction within Wagon Wheel Creek for repair of the gabion structure will include restoration of the site, including revegetating with willow (Salix sp.), mule fat (Baccharis salicifolia), and cattail (Typha sp.) cuttings.
