Document Description
This Agreement relies on the Notification materials and a CDFW site inspection by Environmental Scientist Andrew Orahoske on May 30, 2018 and June 19, 2018. The project is limited to 10 encroachments (Table 1). Two encroachments are for water diversion from a spring and shallow well connected to stream underflow for domestic use. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure in accordance with this Agreement. Two encroachments are for existing onstream reservoirs to maintain and replace outlet culverts and to install emergency rocked spillways. One encroachment is for a water diversion to operate a microhydro power generation system, Five encroachments are to upgrade failing and undersized stream crossings. Work for these encroachments will include excavation, removal of the failing crossings, replacement with new properly sized crossings, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion.
