The project will require installation of a vegetated swale using approximately 205 cubic yards to fill, turf reinforced mats, and native vegetation and installation of a grade drop structure approximately with an 8 inch drop, after the drop the channel will be graded to match the existing streambed aspect. The grade drop structure will be lined with rock slope protection fabric and keyed, angular rip-rap. The entire structure including bio-swale and drop structure is approximately 6 linear feet or 0.0002 acres. Insurance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2014-0268-R3 is pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
