Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2016-0075-R1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Mr. Mark Switzer. The project is limited to six encroachments that include two stream crossings, remediation of two pond spillways, water diversion from a pond, and one project to restore headwater cfhannels damaged by illegal grading (table 1). The majority of project work will be conducted to control erosion and remediate sites that have been damaged by unpermitted activities. The two on-stream unlined ponds require redirection and construction of spillways back to the original channel where the streams once flowed. The headwater channels buried by illegal grading require the erosion. All sites require bank stabilization that will be accomplished through a combination of contouring and revegetation. The two parcels have a total of five ponds, of which at least one pond will provide water for the parcel for domestic use and irrigation.
