NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Yuba County Water Agency (YCWA) plans to pass gravel, cobble, and sediment through Our House Diversion Dam. Sediment pass-through (SPT) events would commence during storm events anticipated of producing sufficient flows to transport material from the vicinity of the project structures and to distribute fine and coarse sediments downstream of the dam. The long term goal of the operation is to re-establish bedload continuity of a range of different size material through all reaches below Our House Diversion, thereby maintaining gravel recruitment and restoring ecological function in downstream areas, while maintaining the functionality of project structures without dredging.
