Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2018-0819-R1 , pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Mr. Jeff McPherson. The project is limited to five encroachments to unnamed tributaries to South Dobbyn Creek. Four encroachments are to upgrade existing unpermitted stream crossing to current standards. Work for these encroachments will include some or all of the following: excavation, culvert removal, culvert replacement, backfilling and compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion. The other encroachment is to excavate perched fill and rock armor hydrologically connected drainage channels associated with terraced earthwork. Work will include excavating and properly spoiling perched fills, slope stabilization, and rock armoring as needed to minimize erosion from shallow ground water and storm water runoff.
