Document Description
Project Description: The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement 1600-2019-0846-R1, pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 1602, to the project Applicant, D’Andre Caldwell-Johnson. The project is limited to the diversion of surface water from a spring-fed tributary of the larger unnamed stream for both commercial cannabis cultivation and domestic purposes. This Agreement allows for the diversion of water from the existing spring source during winter months according to existing water rights that allow for storage under Small Irrigation Registration H504429. Maintenance of the point of diversion includes cleaning out a spring box set into a shallow pool where the spring emerges, which gravity feeds water to a network of storage tanks via a 2-inch PVC pipe. Current and planned water storage on the parcel consists of approximately 61,580 gallons in various sized tanks. There is also an existing 24-inch corrugated metal culvert that is adequately sized and in good condition on the main tributary drainage. Specific work at the culvert includes removing overgrown vegetation at the inlet and outlet to prevent debris jams and sediment removal from the inlet, as needed. Vegetation consists primarily of non-native blackberries which can be managed with hand tools.
