NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The applicant intends to alter the streambed by constructing an all weather crossing on Grimes Canyon Creek. This Agreement will authorize the concrete crossing and associated mitigation. This Agreement is part of a larger project involving ungrouted riprap protection at the crossing area. The bank stabilization will be authorized under the Agreement with Ventura County Resource Conservation District and the Natural Resource Conservation District Calleguas Creek permit Coordination Program, Streambed Alteration Agreement # 1600-2005-0570-R5. The crossing will consist of a pad that is 120 feet long and 20 feet wide. The crossing will be secured by footings. Two culverts (50 feet by 12 inches) will be placed near the banks to allow for water conveyance. A 4 foot width layer of rock (24-36 inches) will be placed at the downstream portion of the crossing (including numerous weep holes) to prevent undercutting of the structure. No native vegetation will be impacted by the crossing. Vegetation will be planted along the toe of slope and upper bank areas upstream of the crossing as mitigation and for overall protection of the banks. The applicant will also make repairs to an existing upstream crossing. Repairs include replacing new ungrouted rock at the downstream portion of the crossing to prevent further undercutting of the structure. Some dead vegetation will be removed in the channel that may interfere with flows.
