The project is limited to two encroachments (Table 1 of LSAA). Two encroachments are for new water diversions from unnamed tributaries to Cave Creek. Water from the spring (POD-1) is diverted for domestic use. Water from POD-2 is diverted for irrigation. Work for the water diversion will include the new installation of a spring box
and a screened intake at the respective PODs and use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure. The Permittee has disclosed a 24-inch culvert (located at approximately 39.3825, -123.2049), an 18-inch culvert (located at approximately 39.3823, -123.2050), and another 24-inch culvert (located at approximately 39.3793, -123.2044). These stream crossing were stated to be in good condition and meeting current standards. Culverts that were disclosed in the Notification, but not included as 1602 projects with fees, are not covered under this Agreement. If maintenance (such as armoring) and/or replacement is necessary, that work will need to be covered under a major amendment or a separate Agreement. The Permittee has disclosed a water well located at approximately 39.3785, -123.2054. The well's potential for hydraulic connectivity to streams was not addressed in the Notification by a professional hydrogeologist licensed in the state of California and the Department has not evaluated this well. No other projects that may be subject to FGC1602 were disclosed. This Agreement does not retroactively permit any stream crossings, water diversions or other encroachments not described in Table 1 of the LSAA.
