Document Description
DFG is intending to execute a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, City of Poway. The applicant proposes to the alter the stream/lake to perform routine channel clearing and vegetation maintenance associated with the City of Poway Flood Control Vegetation Management project. Project activites include maneuvering a flail-type mower that finely shreds cattail/marsh vegetation and leaves it in a 3-6" layer on the ground surface within specific areas of the channel in order to ensure a specific flow line is maintained. The equipment used to perform this maintenance activity applies low ground pressure without penetrating the surface, and the mowing process remains six inches above the channel bottom, allowing the root systems to remain intact. The project also includes removal of invasive, exotic and noxious plant species, trash, debris, and encampments.
