Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2018-0128-R6, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Southern California Gas Company. The Project will consist of repairs/replacement along the existing 30-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline corridor (Line 235). The work will cross 40 desert dry washes. All repair and replacement locations will be located within the existing 50-foot right-of-way, which extends approximately 25 feet on both sides of the pipeline centerline. Rock riprap or other structures will not be used within or near drainage features. In addition, water is not anticipated to require diversion because the drainages are expected to be dry during construction.
