Document Description
Categorical Exemption pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15301, Class 1, for the operation, repair, and maintenance of existing public or private structures, facilities, or mechanical equipment, involving negligible or no expansion of existing or former use. LADWP proposes to conduct routine vegetation and debris maintenance on an existing flume in Spunky Canyon Creek that measures inflow to Bouquet Reservoir. Approximately 50 feet of riparian vegetation would be removed upstream and ten feet downstream of the flume. The forebay and tailbay would be dug out approximately ten feet upstream and downstream of the measuring station and sediment would cleared and removed. Vegetation would be trimmed back from the road between the paved road and the measuring station. Minor road grading would be required. A biological monitor would be present on-site during all maintenance activities.
