Document Description
CDFW is intending to execute a Streambed Alteration Agreement pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code (#1600-2019-0226-R5) to the project applicant, City of San Diego Transportation and Stormwater Department. The project proposes to impact as many as 60.42 acres of stream, consisting of 39.31 acres of concrete-lined channel, 8.58 acres of unvegetated natural channel, 3.94 acres of disturbed wetland, 0.93 acre of coastal salt marsh, 1.67 acres of freshwater marsh, 0.18 acre of oak riparian, 3.90 acres of riparian forest/woodland, 1.61 acre of riparian scrub, and 0.29 acre of eucalyptus/ornamental to conduct routine maintenance and repair of public drainage facilities as described and depicted in the Municipal Waterways Maintenance Plan (MWMP), prepared by the City of San Diego Transportation & Stormwater Department, and dated March 2020. The MWMP includes site specific evaluations for a group of facilities where specific maintenance and repair activities are necessary to provide flood risk reduction and/or to ensure infrastructure longevity. The activities authorized by this Agreement are a continuation of routine maintenance and repair activities the City has historically conducted. Project activities include vegetation management, invasive plant species management, sediment/debris removal, structural clearing, concrete repair, bank repair, riprap replacement, temporary access/loading areas, temporary staging, temporary stockpile, flow diversions, and installation of post-maintenance erosion control measures.
