Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2015-0023-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Diane Pendola. The project is limited to creating side a channel into the inlet diversion pipe by removing sediment with hand tools, and lining with geo-tech fabric and clean rock. Sand bags may be used to support the end of the current concrete dam structure where the water is washing around the dam and causing erosion, but will not increase the height of the dam. Water will be diverted according to the pre-1914 claim as outlined in the statement of water diversion and use Number S012424. Existing T-posts and lumber planks that slide in and out of the existing slats in the concrete dam structure will be used to raise the water level for summer diversion and will be removed prior to October 31st each year. The project will also include the removal of dead and dying trees, and clearing of vegetation under 4 inches diameter at breast height that threaten the diversion structure. All removed material will be deposited at least 150-feet from and where it cannot re-enter the stream. All work will be conducted at the same time each year.
