Document Description
The project is limited to two encroachments. The first encroachment is for water diversion of a well located in the channel from 2 unnamed tributaries to Fish Creek. Water is diverted for domestic and irrigation. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure. The second encroachment is to decommission an onstream pond restoring the stream channel to natural conditions. The pond was dry at the time of inspection. Work to decommission will include excavation of fill, recontouring fill for stream realignment, and revegetation with native plants. The Notification states the culverts are in good condition and meeting current performance standards. One of the 2 existing crossings disclosed in the notification was included as a 1602 project with fees and was located off parcel and the other was not considered a stream crossing. Consequently, these two culverts are not covered under this Agreement. If maintenance (such as armoring) and/or replacement become necessary, that work must be covered by a major amendment or a separate Notification. The Notification discloses the use of a well located at Lat/Long 40.0624, -123.7668 as depicted on the site map and in associated photos but, claimed to be many feet off channel away from the stream bed, bank, and channel within notification one. Upon site inspection, the well is located within the confluence of 2 unnamed tributaries to Fish Creek and is jurisdictional. The revised notification narrative clarifies the wells location within the streambed of two unnamed tributaries to Fish Creek but does not accurately depict its’ location on the SD-1 Site Plan. This well is presented as the sole source of water for all needs on the property. Based on the resources, and the site inspection, the well is hydraulically connected to streams and shall be evaluated for potential impacts from commercial cannabis irrigation use through the County’s conditional use permit/cannabis cultivation permit (PLN-11704-SP).
