Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2015-0269-R3, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board. The project is limited to repair of an eroding bank near the abutments of a Caltrain bridge. An existing cottonwood tree, which has fallen over and is aligned diagonally to channel flow, will be retained, and the toe of the slope will be protected with large woody debris (approximately 13 logs total). The Logs will be installed so as to allow overhang, providing instream cover and refuge habitat for fish. A bolder/cobble/gravel mix (8 cubic yards) will then be applied to weight down the logs and reduce the likelihood of bank scour. Interstitial spaces will be planted with willow and cottonwood stakes.
