Document Description
The primary objective of the proposed project is to develop State Water Board regulation by adding Section 862, Russian River, Special to division 3 of title 23, California Code of Regulations. The proposed Regulation would prohibit diversions from the Russian River stream system for purposes of frost protection from MArch 15 through May 15, unless they are in accordance with a WDMP approved by the State Water Board. The proposed Regulation would apply to all diversions, including hydraulically connected groundwater, regardless of the diverter's basis of right, unless a diversion is exempted by the Board. In order to be approved, a WDMP would be required to ensure that the instantaneous cumulative diversion rate does not result in a reduction in stream stage that is harmful to salmonids and would be required to include stream and diversion monitoring and reporting requirements. The number and location of stream stage monitoring gages would be required to be established in consultation with the NOAA Fisheries Service and the CDFG. The WDMP would be required to be administered by a governing body capable of ensuring the goals of the program are met.
