The project is limited to restoring all segments of stream channels that were filled without notification to or authorization from CDFW, and to restore capacity to and remove pollutants from an in-line pond (water impoundment, also historically used for irrigation) by: the excavation/dredging of sediment from the pond, the creation of two fore bays with rip-rap, and installation of a corrugated metal pipe riser on the pond outlet culvert (to catch large debris and discharge energy).
Project activities include: dredging of sediment from a pond, use of sediment for fill and contouring of upstream channels, grading, and habitat revegetation.
The project is located within the bed, channel, and bank of an unnamed tributary to Santiago Creek, adjacent to 17343 Santiago Canyon Road, in the Silverado area of unincorporated Orange County, State of California; El Toro Quad Map San Bernardino Meridian
