Document Description
CDFW has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2016-0217-0153-R5, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Ventura County Watershed Protection District. Project is limited to the removal of sediment, debris, and obstructing vegetation within a 1,230 foot long and 20 foot wide section of Coyote Creek. To remove debris in the channel and restore a low-flow channel, Permittee will trim vegetation within a 20-foot wide swath along the centerline from 10 feet upstream of Camp Caffee Road downstream to Santa Ana Bridge. Work shall be conducted using hand tools and small motorized equipment. Dead and downed woody material will be removed. Small willows less than four inches in diameter and other trees in this area may be cut to ground, but will not be removed by the roots. Within the Central 10 feet of the 20 feet wide vegetation thinning swath, Permittee will use small equipment to remove sediment to form a roughly trapezoidal-shaped channel with a bottom width of 8 feet, and 1:1 side slopes. The maximum depth of excavation is approx.. 3 feet along the centerline. No more than 500 cubic yards of sediment will be removed. The goal is to re-establish a grade of 0.2% along the 1,230 linear feet of channel. About 885 linear feet of channel require the bottom excavation to attain this grade. Within 0.57 acre work area, approx.. 0.25 acre will be affected by grading to remove sediment.
