The Buena Vista Lagoon Cattail Maintenance
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Buena Vista Lagoon cattail maintenance project involves the cutting of approximately eight acres of cattails within the lagoon. Vegetation will be cut at or just below water level to increase vector control effectiveness and increase water circulation. Cattails will be cut in a crosshatching fashion using hand tools. Rhizomes will not be dug out and no soil will be disturbed or removed. Cut vegetation will be removed. Cattail removed will occur from September 1 to February 14 to avoid the avian breeding season.
The project will involve minor alterations to vegetation within an existing state-designated Ecological Reserve to aid vector control efforts and will also enhance foraging habitat for fish and wildlife. Thinning of dense stands of vegetation will also facilitate movement of the Federal- and State-listed Endangered light-footed Ridgway's rail at the Ecological Reserve.
