Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (Department) has executed Lake and streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2017-0007-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the fish and Game Code to Allen Ennis. The project is limited to removal of nine (9) 10 ¾ inch diameter steel tube pilings along the Southern edge of the pier to convert the existing pier from a double piling support to a single centered piling supported pier. The existing deck and supports for the 132 foot pier will be removed and a new decking and support structure will be installed using the north edge pilings for the center pilings. The pier will also be extended by approximately 69 feet further into the lake and nine (9) new 10 ¾ inch steel tube pilings will be driven into the lake be to support the extension. The final square footage of the pier and decking will decrease by approximate 0.2 square feet from the current configuration. However, with the use of a single piling support style pier the overall impacts to the lake bed will decrease by 10% from the existing configuration.

This project primarily consists of the replacement of an existing double piling supported pier with a single row piling supported pier within the same footprint with a minor 69 foot extension to the lake ward end of the pier to allow for lake access during extreme low lake water levels. There will be a net decrease of 0.2 square feet (265 square feet to 264.8 square feet) once the extension is completed. The overall disturbance of the lake bottom upon completion will be 10% less than the current level of lake bed disturbance.
