Wohler Ponds Decommisioning Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project consists of decommissioning the off-channel Wohler Infiltration Ponds 1 and 2 by removal of two manual valves each located adjacent to the ponds and grading each pond at a slope of 1 percent toward the river. A 1% slope will allow the ponds to fill with water during flood events but will allow them to drain at the same rate as the receding river. The proposed project will prevent entrapment of salmonids in the ponds after flood events and will meet the requirements of RPM 6, Terms and Conditions Item C.
