The project includes constructing a ditch less than 1000 feet long up to 18 inches deep with sloped-sides (having run over rise ratios of 3:1 and 4:1), to direct durface water away from the CHP Academy Canine Facility, nearby buildings, and parking facility to an unnamed ephemeral drainages. The total disturbed area will be less than one acre. After the project is complete, the surface will be restored to its original condition and the ditch will be turf and excavated soil removed to a designated spoil area located on site. The project will direct water away from structures and reduce ponding.
Minor Alterations to Land; The project will not result in removal healthy, mature, scenic trees. Grading will occur on land with a slope less than 10 percent. Project involves minor trenching and backfilling where the surface is restored. The project will have a temporary and negligible effect on resources in the area.
