Calleguas Sediment Removal
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The Operator intends to alter Calleguas Creek by excavating 650,000 cubic yards of accumulated sediment from the creek using excavators, backhoes, bull dozers and haul trucks. Approximately 2 to 4 feet of accumulated sediment will be removed from the channel bottom. Water will be diverted within the channel via an excavated channel or a temporary dike with the use of a screened pump. The pump shall be placed in a 4 foot diameter, screened area to prevent the take of any aquatic species. Several temporary earth filled access ramps will be built along the levees and then removed upon completion of the work. The operator shall leave an approximately 12 foot wide strip of vegetation, which may be mowed, and shall run parallel to the channel, along the toe of one bank, for the entire length of the project. This strip will alternate sides of the low flow channel annually, if needed. SAA# 1600-2006-0051-R5
