Document Description
A Conditional Use Permit to allow restoration activities to occur on a 54-acre parcel containing the lower reaches of Wood Creek, a perennial stream, which crosses through the property before entering Freshwater Slough. To enhance salmonid and tidewater goby access, the project proposes to the following: removal of the existing tidegate on Wood Creek, removal of a defunct waterman tidegate and culvert south of Wood Creek, relocation of cattle fencing to the future borders of the restoration area, installation of a salinity sill, improving an existing stream crossing by replacement of a failed culvert with a flat car bridge, excavating slough channels and redistribution of spoils to create desired surface elevations, and the planting of salt marsh and riparian vegetation. Approximately 29 acres of seasonal pasture will be flooded as a result.
