Temporary Outlet Channel - San Lorenzo Lagoon Interim Management Plan Project
NOD - Notice of Determination
Present Land Use
San Lorenzo River Mouth at Monterey Bay / Floodplain & Oceanfront Recreation Districts/Natural Area & Coastal Recreation
The project is limited to the following activities: construction of a temporary lagoon breach outlet channel through the sandbar of the San Lorenzo River Lagoon to reduce water surface elevation (WSE) in the lagoon when it measures above five ft National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD); WSE reduction to between four to three ft NGVD dependent upon environmental conditions at the time of breach channel outlet construction; and closure of the temporary breach outlet channel. Elevation measurements will be taken at the train trestle bridge staff plate located adjacent to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The project will minimize impacts to fisheries resources by maintaining a stable outlet channel during the breach, avoiding a sudden decrease in WSE and preventing WSE from lowering less than 3 ft NGVD. Project activities may be repeated up to six times from May 1 to November 15 in the years of 2015 to 2016. The extent of the project area is from the mouth of the San Lorenzo River to above Water Street Bridge (approximately 1.5 miles in length) and into the lower Branciforte Flood Control Channel, while associated construction activities will take place at the sandbar of the San Lorenzo River Lagoon no further than 500 ft from the Pacific Ocean. The CDFW is executing a lake and streambed alteration agreement no. 1600-2015-0175-R3 pursuant to section 1602 of the fish and game code to the project applicant, Scott Collins, City of Santa Cruz.
