NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Issue a Right of Entry (ROE) Permit to AT&T to enter Mt. Diablo State Park to hand excavate existing utility phone line at project site off of Fire Road 59-6 on and near the Summit Trail and park residence #11. AT&T will excavate the phone line by trenching an 18" wide by 36" deep by 200 feet long trench and will place the existing phone line into a new 4" PVC conduit. AT&T will use generator, hand spader, jackhammer and compactor to dig trench and install new conduit and will have fire suppression equipment on hand. ATT work crews will stage equipment next to the trench area. The ROE permit will begin on June 26th, 2008 and will terminate once the work is completed. All work conducted within the boundaries of the easement, including routine maintenance will comply with all State and Federal environmental laws, including but not limited to the Endangered Species Act, California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and Section 5024 of the Public Resources Code, with regard to work conducted within the easement. DPR will advise AT&T if any new historical resources (including archaeological sites), special status species, Threatened/Endangered Species protocols, or other resource issues are identified within the easement area. All ground-disturbing work within the proposed easement will be monitored by an archaeologist meeting the Secretary of the Interior's Qualification Standards for historic and prehistoric archaeology. If potentially significant resources are unearthed, work in the immediate area of the find will be temporarily halted until the site monitor consults with a DPR archaeologist, and identification and proper treatment are determined and implemented. AT&T will be responsible for providing all qualified monitors. All finds will become the property of DPR; ownership of any Native American artifacts will be determined on a case-by-case basis, in consultation with the appropriate tribal representative(s) and/or the Native American Heritage Commission. Archaeological consultants working within the boundaries of the easement or on adjoining State Park property will obtain a permit from the DPR Archaeology, History, and Museums Division prior to commencing any investigations on the property. This easement will provide legal access and use of this property to ATT, while protecting natural resources.
