Document Description
CDFW has executed Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2017-0686-R1, pursuant to section 1602 of the fish and game code to Mr. Brandon Fawaz, Owner. The project is limited to 1) the repair of a 4 in polyvinyl chloride pipe buried under the Moffett Creek bed, and 2) the restoration of the north and south banks of Moffett Creek with native willow plantings and grasses. The repair of the 4" PVC pipe will include trenching across the bed and into the banks on both sides to get the pipe at least 3 ft under the bed. Existing material in the bed will be used to backfill and then be re-graded to contour of the channel. Plantings will occur from the toe of the bank, up the bank, and at flood plain elevation. The permittee estimated 1.2-1.6 acres of stream bank and flood plain will be planted with either native grasses or native riparian plants. Similarly, it is estimated with 420 randomly placed pole cuttings with 150 plantings on north bank, and 270 plantings on south bank averaging of a cutting ever 160 sf. All work shall be in accordance with submitted plans and diagrams and any subsequent revisions approved by the CDFW in writing.
