Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is executing Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2014-0190-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Sacramento Municipal Utility District. The project is limited to drilling of two bedrock cores from the bed of Slab Creek Reservoir. The drilling will be conducted from a barge anchored on the reservoir. The drilling rig will be permanently mounted to the barge. Contaminated drilling fluids will be pumped out of the drill casing and placed in temporary drum storage and then transferred to shore where they will then be transported off-site for proper disposal. A tender barge will be moored to the drilling barge and all necessary materials will be stored on the tender barge. The barge(s) will be anchored to the bed of the reservoir once drilling operations have commenced. Project staff will be ferried from shore out to the drilling barge by means of a small skiff which will remain tied of to the barge during the normal work day.
