The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2018-0080-R5, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Rancho Matilija Mutual Water Company represented by Jurgen Gramckow. The project as proposed, will connect a well from the southeastern bank of the Ventura River to an existing pipeline on the northwestern bank via horizontal directional drilling (HDD). Drilling will be conducted to a depth of 200 feet below the surface of the ground to the underlaying bedrock of the Ventura River. Concurrent with drilling processes, an 8-inch pipe will be aseembled on the ground adjacent to the access road. Upon drilling completion, the 8-inch pipe will be drawn through the drilled hole and connected to the existing piepline. Access to the site will be from an existing parking lot on Meyer Rd to an upper terrace of the Ventura River along established horse/hiking trails. Minor trimming of vegetation and a few small tree removals will be needed to widen the path for construction equipment. Equipment needed to complete the project will be a standard pick-up truck with a flatbed trailer, a backhoe, an auger, and a loader with a bucket.
