Maintain Existing Road to Widman Ranch
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Department of Fish and Wildlife is proposing to execute a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2015-0180-R5. The Applicant proposes to repair the flood-damaged dirt road from East Fork Road at the East Fork of San Gabriel River to Widman Ranch (approximately 8 miles northeast). The dirt road will be routinely maintained to its pre-existing condition by using heavy machinery to regrade the road and remove obstructions (e.g., boulders, rocks, large debris) to place them out of the roadway. Maintenance activities will occur primarily after a significant flood event that would cause the dirt road to be unsafe and inaccessible.
Class 1 consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination.
