Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2016-0586-R1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Mr. Walter Sommers. The project is limited to seven encroachments. Three encroachments are for water diversion from unnamed tributaries to Morgan Creek. Water is diverted for domestic use and irrigation. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure. Three other proposed encroachments are to upgrade undersized culverts. Work for these encroachments will include excavation, removal of the failing culverts, replacement with a new properly sized culver, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion. The last encroachment is to armor the pond spillway to minimize erosion.
