The project is limited to five encroachments. The five proposed encroachments include 4 upgrades of failing and undersized culverts and the decommission of an instream pond. Work for these encroachments will include excavation, removal of the failing culverts, replacement with new properly sized culverts, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion and decommissioning of an onstream pond through a stream restoration plan. The Notification also discloses the use of a well located at Lat/Long 40.5118, -123.5870. This well is presented as the sole source of water for all needs on the property. CDFW did not evaluate hydraulic connection of the wells to surface water, nor was a hydrogeologic evaluation prepared by a licensed geologist provided for CDFW review.
Described features disclosed within the notification, but are not covered under this Agreement are Pond 2 and a dry well . This Agreement does not retroactively permit any stream crossings, water diversions or other encroachments not described in here. Pond 2 appears hydrologically connected by receiving waters from the wetland it is contained within and may be subject to FGC section 1602 but was not identified as a project and is not covered under this Agreement.
