NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 1652, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has approved the Lagunita Diversion Dam Removal Project submitted by Leland Stanford Jr. University. The project includes removal of the existing lagunita Diversion Dam on San Francisquito Creek, a nonoperational 8-foot-high concrete dam, and restoration of the stream bed to improve fish passage and sediment transport. Habitat complexity will be increased by removing the dam, headwalls and gate valves, and by creation of an pool-riffle bedform along a 400-foot reach of stream. Specifically, the project will provide a net benefit to steelhead by increasing the length and depth of pools, improving spawning gravel retnetion and deposition of scour areas, and providing additional pool shelter.
