The project is limited to one encroachment (Table 1). The one proposed encroachment is to upgrade a misaligned stream crossing. Work for this encroachment will include excavation, removal of the failing crossing, replacement with new properly sized and aligned crossing, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion.
Project activities Crossing 1 (P-1) shall require pre-construction surveys by a Designated Biologist only if surface water is present one week before construction or becomes present during construction.
Permittee disclosed additional features of interest (Table 2).
The Notification states these stream crossings are in good condition and meeting current performance standards. Existing stream crossings 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 become necessary, that work must be covered by a major amendment or a separate Notification.
The Notification also discloses the use of a well located at Lat/Long 39.1128, -123.2539. This well is presented as the sole source of water for all needs on the property. CDFW did not evaluate hydraulic connection of the well to surface water, nor was a hydrogeologic evaluation prepared by a licensed geologist provided for CDFW review.
