The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed alteration Agreement number 1600-2016-0108-R1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Mr. Robert Schultz.
The project is limited to one encroachment. The encroachment is for to reconstruct a pond that was built without permits or the oversight of an engineer. The current pond has cracks in the fill-slope and an over steepened fill face that has the potential for failure. The spill way is poorly constructed and lacks the size to carry a 100 year rainfall event. The spillway also lacks armoring to prevent erosion. The project will reconstruct the pond and spillway in accordance with signed engineering plans that include specifications on compaction, fill-slope gradient, and spillway size and armoring.
The project proposes to stabilize a pond built without permits. The work would include compaction, reducing the gradient of the pond fill face to increase stability, and construction of a spillway armored with rock to minimize erosion. There would be no significant adverse impact on endangered, rare or threatened species or their habitat pursuant to Section 15065. There are no hazardous materials at or around the project site that may be disturbed or removed. The project will not result in impacts that are significant when viewed in connection with the effects of past projects, the effects of other current projects, and the effects of probable future projects.
