Document Description
The applicant proposes to grade the banks of Miller Creek and excavate 300 feet downstream and 400 feet upstream (700' total), of stream channel under Rail Road Bridge. An unknown amount of gravel and other sediments has accumulated in gravel bars under and near the Bridge. Currently, there are several sediment bars extending both above and below the bridge. The proposed activity is an effort to remove accumulated sediment from below and near the Rail Road Bridge in order to restore hydraulic capacity in the stream channel and prevent flooding in the immediate area. A small bulldozer will be used to move sediments to a removal point. An excavator, working from top of bank, will remove the sediment that shall be compacted into the surrounding roads. Work will be performed when the creek is dry. Several stands of Arroyo Willow (Salix lasiolepis) will be partially trimmed and all disturbed areas will be replanted with multi-story native vegetation. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2006-0433-3 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project operator, Steve Grant.
