The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2018-0512-R1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Stephen Newman.
The project is limited to one encroachment for streambank stabilization and restoration on Mill Creek. Work for this encroachment will include excavation, removal of vegetation, placement of rock slope protection along the streambank and channel to stabilize the bank and prevent erosion, revegetation with native plants and removal of nonnative invasive plants from the project area. Because Mill Creek is a perennial stream, flow will be bypassed by construction of a temporary coffer dam, including protection meausres for fish and wildlife. The site will be monitored post-construction for efficiancy of streambank stabilization and the restoration of native vegetation.
Small Habitat Restoration Project
The project stabilizes a streambank to prevent erosions and sedimentation using native vegetation and bioengineering techniques. There would be no significant adverse impact on endangered, rare, or threatened species or their habitat pursuant to section 15065. There are no hazardous materials at or around the project site that may be disturbed or removed. The project will not result in impacts that are significant when viewed in connection with the effcts of past projects, the effects of other current projects, and the effects of probable future projects.
