The project consists of one encroachment for the restoration of a low-order, seasonal stream filled
and graded during the unauthorized development of two cultivation flats. Restoration shall attempt to reestablish the
stream’s natural channel and hydrology. In its current configuration, a culvert diverts the stream at an oblique angle from
its original alignment under the upslope cultivation flat (a horizontal-distance of approximately 100 feet); at the culvert
outlet, streamflow is conveyed down a rocked channel constructed in a steep embankment before reaching the
downslope cultivation flat where it either flows across the flat or infiltrates, apparently failing to reach the downstream
channel. Permittee shall retain a qualified professional to prepare and implement a Stream Restoration Plan (SRP)
describing the materials and methods for restoring the stream’s natural channel and hydrology and rehabilitating the
associated riparian buffer. Revegetation shall be consistent with the Oregon white oak woodland alliance present on the
property. The SRP shall be submitted for CDFW review and acceptance no fewer than 90 days prior to implementation.
Work for this encroachment will include excavation, removal of the culvert, realignment and reestablishment of the stream
channel, recontouring the hillslope to mimic original topography, revegetation of the riparian buffer, and addition of wood
and rock to the channel to dissipate energy and restore natural stream morphology and function.
