Document Description
California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), Region 1 is granting a Right of Entry Permit to the United States Bureau of Reclamation and The Sacramento River Forum, to enter onto CDFW owned lands at Anderson River Park to implement the Anderson River Park Salmonid Habitat Improvement Project (Project), a component of the Upper Sacramento River Anadromous Fish Habitat Restoration Project. The Project is a rearing habitat restoration and enhancement project located along the Sacramento River (RM 282) within Anderson River Park. The Project will create 3 new side channels in existing high flow side channels in the floodplain of the Sacramento River. The purpose of the Project is to create functional side channels that inundate at low flow conditions and provide additional rearing habitat for winter-run juvenile Chinook salmonids as well as other species, including restoration and maintenance of the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the Project Area.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Emergency Project
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 21080(b)(4); 15269(b)(c)
Reasons for Exemption
Project is not subject to CEQA pursuant to the Governor's Emergency Proclamation No. 4-25-14 which suspended the application of CEQA for actions taken by State agencies pursuant to directives 6, 7, and 8 of such emergency proclamation. Executive Order B-28-14 extended the original suspension from April 25, 2014 through May 2016. Executive Order B-36-15 extended the suspensions until termination of the drought emergency. The drought emergency ended on April 7, 2017. Governor's Proclamation No. 4-25-14 and Executive Order B-28-14 state that applicable projects started prior to the expiration, but not completed, shall not be subject to CEQA for the time required to complete those projects. This Project was started in March 2017, prior to the expiration of the drought emergency, by issuance of a Right of Entry Permit to the United States Bureau of Reclamation to conduct test boring and_ site preparation at Anderson River Park. Because this Project was started before expiration of the drought emergency, it is not subject to CEQA pursuant to the Governor's Emergency Proclamation and Executive Orders.
