Valentine Camp Stream Improvements
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The University of California, Natural Reserve System's Valentine Reserve is proposing to: (1) remove some instream vegetation and downed trees from a short, small, spring-fed stream to improve flows; (2) repair existing gabions installed approximately 20 years ago to trap sediment; (3) install two new sets of gabions to trap sediment, raise stream level, and inhibit down-cutting of the stream. The stream is quite small and originates on Reserve property and is tributary to a constructed pond, and then to Mammoth Creek. Standard measures (filter-fiber rolls or the like) will be used to prevent downstream sediment transport.
