Document Description
This Agreement relies on the Notification materials and a desk review without a CDFW site inspection. The project is limited to 2 encroachments (Table 1). One encroachment is for water diversion from a spring for domestic use. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure in accordance with this Agreement. One 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. POD-1 40.2891, -123.8090 Diversion from a spring for domestic water use; Permittee disclosed rate of diversion of approximately 0.04 gallons per minute. Permittee shall bypass 80% of flow and implement Seasonal Diversion Minimization: no more than 200 gallons per day from May 15 – October 31. Crossing-1 40.2857, -123.8104 Replace failing, undersized 24” diameter culvert with minimum 36” diameter culvert. The Notification disclosed a small reservoir (Lat/Long 40.2887, -123.8085) and proposes no work. The reservoir shall be subject to CDFW site inspection, and if work is determined necessary, then Permittee shall submit a major amendment or a separate Notification. The Notification discloses two water wells; Well A (Lat/Long: 40.2883, -123.8093) and Well B (Lat/Long: 40.2893, -123.8099). The wells are presented as the sole source of water for all proposed commercial cannabis cultivation on the property. CDFW did not evaluate hydraulic connection of the wells to surface water, nor was a hydrogeologic evaluation prepared by a licensed geologist provided for CDFW review. Based on the available resources the wells may be hydraulically connected to streams and/or springs and shall be evaluated for potential impacts from commercial cannabis irrigation use through Humboldt County’s cannabis cultivation permit (PLN-2021-17108). No other projects that may be subject to FGC section 1602 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.
