Document Description
The Department is issuing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement for the proejct proponent who proposes the construction of a single, 12-million gallon steel water reservoir situated on or adjacent to the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The project also involves the extension of an access road and water transmission line. The project will result in construction of a stormwater intercept system, of which a portion will be constructed within and adjacent to a portion of an unnamed blueline stream with a limited drainage area emanating from the adjoining foothills. This intercept system is comprised of a stormwater inlet structure that connects with two 48-inch diameter drain pipe transitions to a 54-inch diameter drain pipe located along the eastern portion of the reservoir. This extends to a point of discharge through an energy dissipater and into the downstream portion of the drainage. On-site and slope runoff will be collected and conveyed through two 36-inch diameter laterals to a 48-inch diameter mainline pipe. The project will permanently impact approximately 1.5 acres of the streambed. The proponent shall mitigate the permanent impact to the 1.5 acres of desert dry wash woodland at 3:1 through the acquisition of or the placement of a conservation easement on 4.5 acres of desert dry wash woodland habitat.
