Project SAA 1600-2009-0231-R2
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project will eliminate the last partial barrier to fish passage on the Cosumnes River and will improve access for fall-run Chinook salmon upstream of the Granlees Dam. The project proposes to modify the existing fish ladder at the North Granlees Diversion Dam by extending the ladder to create appropriate jump heights between pools and improve upon the existing hydraulic criteria for fish passage.
Project is less than five acres in size and assures that the restoration, enhancement and protection of habitat for fish, will not result in impacts that are significant when viewed in connection with the effects of past projects, the effects of other current projects, and the effects of probable future projects.
