Document Description
This Agreement relies on the Notification materials and a desk review without a CDFW site inspection. The project is limited to three encroachments (Table 1 ). One encroachment is for water diversion from Sherwood Creek. Water is diverted for domestic use. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure. One proposed encroachment is to upgrade a failing and undersized culvert. Work for this encroachment will include excavation, removal of the failing culvert, replacement with new properly sized culvert, backfilling and compaction of fill , and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion. The final encroachment is for the use of an existing micro-hydroelectric power diversion. Work for the micro-hydroelectric power diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure and either installing an additional 3-inch pipe in the channel or otherwise modifying the structure such that 50% bypass of flow is ensured when diversion is in use. The Notification discloses an additional feature of interest (Table 2). An existing rainwater catchment pond on the property will be used for cannabis irrigation. CDFW has not conducted a site inspection and has not evaluated hydrologic connection of the pond spillway to surface water, nor was a hydrologic connectivity evaluation provided for CDFW review. No other projects that may be subject to FGC1602 were disclosed. This Agreement does not retroactively permit any constructed reservoirs (including "ponds"), stream crossings, water diversions, modifications to riparian buffers, or other encroachments not described in Table 1.
