Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The project is limited to one encroachment (Table 1). The proposed encroachment is to upgrade a failing and undersized stream crossing. Work for this encroachment will include excavation, removal of the failing crossing, replacement with new properly sized crossing, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion. Work shall not commence until CDFW has reviewed and approved stream crossing design plans as stated in Sections 2.27 and 3.1 of this Agreement. The Permittee has disclosed a water well located at approximately 39.8417, -123.1093. 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 FGC 1602 were disclosed. This Agreement does not retroactively permit any stream crossings, water diversions or other encroachments not described in Table 1.
