Hole in the Ground Creek Restoration Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) are proposing a small salmonid habitat restoration project located on the Nature conservancy property. Two to four small wood structures will be created using <12-inch" dbh logs keyed into the bank, root wads and brush. These structures will be placed under the supervision of a CDFW geomorphologist and habitat restoration experts to create cover and depth in the creek for the benefit of salmonids.
The proposed project is limited to the installation of small wood structures to provide habitat for salmonids. All work will be done by CDFW using hand tools. No salmonids will be present at the time of work. There will be no removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees as a result of this project. The project will have no significant effect on the environment.
