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 San Diego. The Applicant proposes to alter the stream/lake to conduct as-needed vegetation removal, not exceed two times per year, for the purposes of maintain flood control capacity within three channel segments. Project activities include cutting native and on-native vegetation growing within the channel with hand tools such as hand trimmers, weed whippers, and chain saws. Vegetation will be trimmed to 2 to 6 inches above ground, and cut material will be removed from the channel and transported to the staging area by hand. Vegetation clearing will occur when the channel segments are dry (expecting occasional pockets of standing water). All heavy mechanized equipment will be located on existing paved roads and no heavy equipment will be utilized in any of the channel segments. Prior to commencement of any vegetation trimming, a biologist will survey the proposed area of work and will identify sensitive vegetation (e.g. southern willow scrub, freshwater marsh, or other riparian habitat) to be avoided. As a result, no impacts to sensitive vegetation are anticipated.
