NOE - Notice of Exemption
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is executing Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2010-0175-R6 pursuant to Section 1602 of the California Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Meadowview Community Association, Inc., represented by Teri Biancardi, 41050 Avenida Verde, City of Temecula, State of California, 92591, Fax (951)296-3711. The project has been designed, in coordination with the Natural Resources Conversation Service, to address the severely incised and unstable stream banks, minimize associated erosion and water-quality issues, and ultimately restore the functions and values of an approximate 1,400 linear-foot portion of the unnamed tributary to Murietta Creek. The project proposes to lay back the stream banks to between a 3.1 and 5.1 slope; install 17 stream barbs; install riprap along a small portion of the stream's toe of slopes; construct earthen diversion bars in the adjacent upland habitat; construct shallow depressions in the adjacent uplands; and plant and maintain native vegetation throughout the project area.
Class 33, S 15333, Small Habitat Restoration Projects: The project is exempt under Class 33 because the project proposes to reduce or eliminate erosion and sedimentation through the stabilization and restoration of stream banks using native vegetation and other bioengineering techniques. The project will not result in significant adverse impacts on endangered, rare or threatened species or their habitats pursuant to section 15065. The project's restoration activities will not involve the disturbance or removal of hazardous materials on lands. The project will not cause significant impacts when viewed in connection with the effects of past, other current, and probable future projects because the purpose of the project is to restore native habitats and reduce or eliminate erosion and sedimentation. Project activities undertaken by Meadowview Community Association, Inc., will not exceed 5 acres.
