Document Description
This project will improve a total of about 404 acres of habitat. It will restore a total of 283 acres of seasonal wetlands and 121 acres of agricultural lands managed to produce food and cover for wildlife. The work to restore seasonal wetland habitat will be conducted in Fields 14B and 29A at Fleming Unit and Fields 2E and 15C at Dakin Unit, and includes recontouring the land within these 4 managed seasonal wetland units, rebuilding/reconstructing existing levees, removing an existing levee (Dakin Field 15C), constructing new levees, replacing existing and installing new water control structures, and reconstructing nesting islands. To enhance agricultural lands managed to produce wildlife food and cover, a 1,320 foot long section of water conveyance pipeline will be installed at the Fleming Unit in Field 23.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15304
Reasons for Exemption
The project proposes to restore a total of 283 acres of seasonal wetlands and 121 acres of agricultural lands managed to produce food and cover for wildlife. Four wetland units will be recontoured with water delivery and management infrastructure reconstructed. One 1,320-foot long section of water conveyance pipeline will be installed. These efforts will allow the fields to be managed more efficiently to provide high-quality wetland and upland habitat for waterfowl and shorebirds during fall and spring migrations, and will also allow some of the wetland habitat to be maintained through the nesting season. The project will have no significant negative effect on the environment.
