Document Description
The Hart Ranch Flow Enhancement project consists of various agricultural water infrastructure modifications and ongoing agricultural operations on the Hart Ranch along the Little Shasta River in the Shasta Valley. The project impact area is limited to 41.66 acres of the working ranch. The project consists primarily of linear alignments along proposed pipe alignments with associated water management infrastructure in existing irrigated pastures and uplands with occasional irrigation ditch crossings, and modification of the existing agricultural diversion structure which poses a partial barrier to fish passage in the Little Shasta River. On ranch efficiency and water management improvements include 1) the construction of new stock watering facilities, 2) replacement of the Hart Ranch's failing Main Pipeline, 3) fish passage improvements consisting of relocation and replacement of the Hart irrigation diversion structure and recontour of a portion of the Little Shasta River to ensure fish passage, and 4) water diversion. All project components are located on the Hart Ranch. As part of the project, the Department has received Notification of Lake or Streambed Alteration from Hart Cattle LLC to operate, maintain, and repair existing water diversion from the Little Shasta River and Evans Spring.
