Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2019-0182-R5, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the City of Goleta represented by Charlie Ebeling. Between 2012 and 2013 Permittee implemented the San Jose Creek Capacity Improvement Project authorized under CDFW streambed alteration agreement 1600-2008-0316-R5. That project included the removal and replacement of the concrete portion of San Jose Creek from Goleta Slough to Hollister Avenue Bridge. As part of that project, articulated slope revetment (ASR) mats were installed along the bed of the stream. Fish passage components were incorporated in the design throughout the stream. In February of 2017, a winter storm damaged an approximately 112-linear-foot x 50-foot-wide segment of the ASR mats and Permittee conducted temporary repairs at that time. The currently proposed project will replace the temporary repairs with permanent repairs consisting of the same ASR mats and same fish passage design.
