Document Description
The Project proposes the reconfiguration of Burris and Lincoln basins by removing sediment, concrete, and riparian vegetation; constructing a new levee; and constructing of a new transfer pipeline and transfer well. The project will also include the implementation of the Burris Basin Habitat Management Plan, and routine maintenance to the basins. The Burris Basin Habitat Management Plan establishes enviornmental programs to provide for the long term management of biological resources within Burris Basin. The environmental programs include sand bar island creation, non-native tree removal, riparian vegetation restoration, and installation of temporary floating island. Sand bar, island creation will provide long-term management of a sand bar island within the southern portion of Burris Basin. Based on direction from the DFG and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, 2.4 acres of sand bar island will be relocated to the southern end of Burris Basin. Non-native tree removal will extract the stands of non-native trees within Burris Basin. Riparian vegetation restoration will create a native vegetation riparian corridor along the shoreline of Burris Basin. A total of 5.86 acres of native vegetation will be created within Burris Basin. Temporary floating island will be installed to retain the existing bird colonies at Burris Basin during the reconstruction period of the sand bar island by providing a temporary nesting area.
