Kissick Water Diversion and Crossing Project (Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2019-0085-R1)
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The project is limited to 1 encroachment. The proposed encroachment is to decommission a failing and undersized stream crossing. Work for this encroachment will include excavation, removal of the failing crossing, laying slopes back 2:1, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion. The first Notification from Margro Advisors states that crossings 1,2, & 3 in Hydrological Analysis, also depicted as crossing 14, 15, and 16 on Parcel Map, are in good condition and are meeting current performance standards. There was a discrepancy between these conditions and the Stamped engineer report on file with County of Humboldt, Roadway Evaluation for Cobb Road from Rattlesnake Bridge to APN 208-341-016 which indicates undersized culverts, erosional features, and sediment delivery from PGE roadway and poor road design (Exhibit A). Then a revised Notification from TRC included these crossings 2,3, and 4 as to be covered under a separate notification to be submitted by the Cobb Road Association. The Cobb Road Association submitted a notification 1600-2020-0278-R1 on June 16, 2020 to cover crossings. The Notification also discloses the use of a well located at Lat/Long 40.4842 - 123.5754. This well is presented as the sole source of water for all needs on the property. CDFW did not evaluate hydraulic connection of the well to surface water, nor was a hydrogeologic evaluation prepared by a licensed geologist provided for CDFW review. Based on the available resources, the well may be hydraulically connected to streams and/or springs and shall be evaluated for potential impacts from commercial cannabis irrigation use through the County’s conditional use permit/cannabis cultivation permit (PLN-12020). Additionally, if jurisdictional projects are identified to rectify Cobb Road’s issues through conditions of the Humboldt County Permit to Cultivate, then those jurisdictional projects may be amended into this Agreement or notified under a separate notification by Cobb Road association/applicant as identified within the notification materials.
