Count Water Diversion, Stream Crossings, and Pond Removal Project (Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2018- 0847-R1)
The project consists of 8 encroachment(s): One encroachment is for water diversion from an unnamed tributary to Long Valley Creek. Water is diverted for domestic use and irrigation. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure. One encroachment is for the removal of an unpermitted on-stream pond and restoration of the stream channel through the former impoundment. Work for this encroachment will involve dewatering the pond under the guidance of CDFW, removal of the pond berm, removal of the outlet culvert, recontouring of the impoundment area, and revegetation of the slopes with native vegetation. All excavated material will be used to return the slopes to original grades with no materials hauled off site. Removal and recontouring of the impoundment are will require the use of an excavator, small bulldozer, and compactor. All work will be conducted when no flowing water is present. The restored channel will be lined with 25 cubic yards of 0.5-1 ft diameter river-washed rock. Following recontouring activities, the surrounding slopes and streambank will be covered with jute netting, mulched, seeded with native grasses, and planted with regionally appropriate native trees.
