Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2007-0330-R5 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, City of San Diego, Transportation Engineering Division. The applicant proposes to temporarily alter the stream/lake to remove trash and hand clear non-native vegetation within a 900-foot segment of the Chollas Creek channel between 41st and 43rd Avenue, south of National Avenue in San Diego, located in San Diego County. The trash pickup and hand clearing activities will be carried out by a citizen community group as part of a statewide coastal cleanup event. The cut vegetation will be disposed of at an appropriate facility. No heavy mechanized equipment will be used within the stream, and no impacts will occur to the soft bottom of the channel. Herbicide treatments appropriate for use in aquatic systems will follow the initial removal and will be conducted by a licensed Pest Control Applicator according to local, regional, and federal regulations.
