Document Description
Reclamation District No. 548 (District) proposes to create 1,700 linear feet of waterside shaded riverine aquatic habitat (SRA) between Stations 340+00 to 357+00 as part of a greater project under Project Funding Agreement TR-10-1.0 between the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and Reclamation District No. 548. An oversized "setback" levee will be constructed to allow waterside plantings. The waterside slope will be flattened from the existing 1.5 vertical to 1 horizontal slope, to a 3:1 slope to create a longer slope. The slope will be planted with native trees and shrubs down to the High Water Line. No work will be done below the High Water Line. Existing waterside Freshwater Marsh habitat will not be impacted. One hundred and fifty (150) native trees and shrubs will be planted and monitored for three (3) years. Issuance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2016-0304-R3 is pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
