Document Description
CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife is proposing to execute Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2013-0240-R5. The Applicant proposes to conduct long-term routine maintenanc eactivities at the Sespe Oil Field for the maintenance of existing sediment basins, weeper dams, and access roads. Maintenance of these structures will ensure they function as designed. The basins are located within the Upper Maple Creek, Upper Tar Creek, and two basins are located within Fourfork Creek. Each weeper dam consist of a dam slope (or face), several drain pipes, as well as a gate to adjust stream flows and these will require repairs when damaged and potentially may need to be replaced. Existing access roads are unimproved and generally 15-20 feet wide and repairs will be conducted within the original access road footprint. Immature vegetation, due to the natural scour events that occur within these high gradient streams, will be removed during sediment removal activities. Temporary impacts associated with sediment clean-out, weeper dam, and access road maintenance are estimated to be 0.25 acres.
