Document Description
The Battle Creek Watershed Road Sediment Reduction Program includes project work to be completed at up to 10 sites distributed along and adjacent to selected sections of County maintained public roads and intersecting private road segments located within the North Fork Battle Creek sub-watershed in southeastern Shasta County (See Attachment B – Map of the Project Area). Historically, general habitat types within the project area included grassland, chaparral, oak woodland, and low elevation mixed coniferous forests. However, most of the project area was burned in the 2012 Ponderosa Fire and was subsequently salvage logged and replanted between 2013 and 2015 with coniferous tree species.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Reasons for Exemption
This project consists of the repair, maintenance and minor alteration of existing public and private roads, road drainage structures, and topographical features (e.g. roadway cutbanks), and will involve negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. There are no exceptions that would make this project ineligible for an exemption such as being located in a sensitive environment, leading to cumulative negative effects, damaging scenic resources within an official state scenic highway, being located on a hazardous waste site, or causing substantial adverse changes in the significance of a historical resource. Moreover, this project is not expected to have any significant adverse impacts on endangered, threatened, or rare species, and in fact is expected to benefit threatened anadromous fish populations and their habitats.
