Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2014-0247-R%, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code, to Ojai Valley Land Conservancy. The project is limited to the removal of inbasive Arundo donax (arundo) and the restoration of 10 acres of riparian habitat within a 16 acre along lower San Antonio Creek. Arundo biomass will be removed and the remaining arundo treated with a foliar herbicide or utilizing the cut and daub method. Scattered arundo will be cut with handheld equipment and removed from the stream while larger infestations will be removed with a mechanical masticator. In the latter instance, arundo biomass may be ground into a mulch and left on site to desiccate. Once arundo is controlled, re-vegetation areas will occur along with regular maintenance, monitoring, and reporting. Funding for this project has been awarded by the Integrated Regional Water Management Program, Proposition 84 Implementation Drought Solicitation.
