Due to drought conditions, dead and dying trees threaten the Columbia Ditch with significant damage if left to fall on their own. Water from the Columbia Ditch serves nearly 2,000 service residential and commercial accounts. Trees will be removed or felled to benefit and safeguard the water infrastructure for the community.
Project is exempt by Gov Brown's 10-30-2015 Emergency Proclamation for dead/dying tree removal in High Hazard Zones 15269 and for general emergency 20808(b)(4).
Exemptions also apply for 15303 and 15304 including modification of small structures and minor alterations of land.
