Document Description
CDFW has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2015-0263-R5, pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, LA County Flood Control District. The purpose of the Devil's Gate Reservoir Sediment Removal and Management Project (Project) is to remove sediment and manage future inflows of sediment to maintain capacity of the Devil's Gate Reservoir (Reservoir). Sediment levels have accumulated above elevations levels in Devil's Gate Reservoir that create operational and safety risk for Devil's Gate Dam and Reservoir. Project need for the Dam is to safely make controlled releases to 5,500 feet per second through the outlet valve and tunnel gates for storm events that are less than or equal to Dam's 50-year design storm (also known as 2% return interval event). The 50-year design storm is defined by LA County Dept. of Public Works Hydrology Manual and used by Permittee to comply with LA county Flood Control Act objectives. The Project need for the Reservoir is to have sufficient capacity to contain the 50-year storm even and/or have capacity sufficient for 2 Design Debris Events (DDE) or 4 million cubic yards (CY) in event of a future inflow of a large sediment inflow. The DDE is defined by LA County Dept. of Public Works Sedimentation Manual and used by Permittee to comply with LA county Flood Control Act objectives. As a result of sediment deposition following the 2009 Station Fire, the available capacity in the Reservoir is less than one DDE. Therefore, sediment removal is required to maintain flood control capacity of 4.0 million CY (two DDE's) below the spillway elevation of 1,040.50 feet above mean sea level. In order to achieve the Project purposes the Permittee proposes three (4) distinct project phases including initial sediment removal, routine maintenance, habitat restoration, and Dam Operations.
