Document Description
California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2018-0359-R1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and game Code to Alisha Goodrich for the Mateel Community Center. The project is limited to one encroachment to install a temporary bridge crossing on the South Fork Eel River. The temporary bridge installation and removal would occur within the summer months of each year to access the "French's Camp" loation on east side of the river for parking, camping, and activities associated with the "reggae on the River" musical festival. The attendance is capped at 10,500 people. Vehicle parking will have a 100 foot setback from wetted channel, and vehicles will be inspected for oil, gas, or other deleterious material leaks. Camping will have 25 foot setback from wetted channel, and portable toilets will be located in the upper portions of the project area. Two 9-foot and 4-inch wide by 56 foot long railcars will be installed side by side with 3 foot abutments on each end using native river-run gravel and pre-cast interlocking concrete blocks, which will provide a channel span of 50 feet. It is anticipated that the wetted channel will be less than 50 feet at time of installation and removal. If either abutment is placed in the wetted channel, clean washed gravel will be place as a foundation pad. The railcars will be decked wih 4 inch by 12 inch pressure treated Douglas fire lumber to provide a 13 foot and 16 foot wide deck, and will be cut to length and drilled for fastening off-site. the railcards have been cleaned of oil and other residuals by supplier and if painted will be done off-site.
