Document Description
CDFW has executed lake and streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2017-0318-R2, pursuant to section 1602 of the fish and game code to the El Dorado Irrigation District. The project is limited to the installation of erosion control structures and plantings in Oyster Creek and north Tributary. In Oyster Creek, a coir roll will be installed near the toe of the bank and willow and alder cuttings will be planted in the eroding bank above the coir roll. The work area at Oyster Creek will be approx 1,000 sf. In North Tributary, a live brush pack, consisting of logs, branches, live cuttings, and stone will be placed in lifts at the face of the main headcut in the gullied section of the channel. Native soil may be used to fill the gaps between stones and logs. An apron of rock will be placed in the channel directly upstream of the headcut in such a way that if the headcut continues upstream, the rocks will fall into the brush pack to fill any voids that form. A biodegradable coir log will be placed at the downstream end of the brush perpendicular to the direction of flow will be staked within two small gullies that enter North Tributary. The entire North Tributary stabilization area (approx 2,500 sf) will be planted with willow cuttings.
