Section 15306
Reasons for Exemption
All material will be placed in disturbed upland areas. Straw waddles or silt fencing will be placed between the upland/wetland interface to avoid impacts to wetlands. The concrete mat will be removed after the study, so upland vegetation can return. The project was reviewed by Department of Fish and Game staff, who have concluded that no biological resources are at risk and no Stream Alteration Agreement is necessary.
