Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game is issuing an Agreement Regarding Proposed Stream or Lake Alteration (SAA#1600-2008-0029-R5) to the project Applicant, California Brea Partners, L.P. The Applicant proposes to alter the streambed and banks through replacing 740 linear feet of the existing open portions of the Loftus diversion channel with a 55 foot wide, enclosed four celled reinforced concrete box culvert. The area above the improved culvert will be used to provide additional parking areas for the Brea Plaza Shopping Center, landscaping, sidewalks, and related improvements. The green grass bio swale provides a stable water quality solution and a more permanent vegetation and biological solution. All existing inlets, which flow into Loftus Channel, will be designed and constructed to flow through the green grass-lined bio swale for water quality filtration prior to low flow entry into Loftus Channel. The Katchall Baffle Filters will be constructed upstream of the new boxed channel to mitigate for water quality impacts. The Applicant shall mitigate 1.28 acre of permanent impacts to the stream channel at compensation to impact ratio of 1.5:1 ratio, by providing adequate funding to the San Gabriel Mountains Conservancy for the creation, restoration and enhancement of a minimum of 1.92 acre riparian habitat at a Department aproved location. The money shall be used only for the creation, restoration and enhancement of riparian habitat.
