Ventura River Stream Gage Bubbler Installation and Operation Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Under the hydrological data collection objective of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), the Department of Water Resources (DWR) proposes to deploy a network of stream gages in high and medium priority groundwater basins to reduce data gaps in the existing stream gage network. The enhanced network would provide essential data to improve water management- including groundwater recharge and to protect fish and wildlife. This proposed project would install a stream gage on Ventura River in the medium priority Upper Ventura Basin (4-003.01). See NOE for full details.

Reasons for Exemption
Most of the proposed activities would take place on developed portions of the drainage. The conduit may lay across a mixture of invasive Bromes and Arundo Donax as well as some typical wetland/riparian plants like Baccharis salicifolia (Mulefat) in the streambed, but no existing native vegetation would be removed. The installation of the stream gage would not significantly disturb the local ecology. No heavy equipment would be utilized, and ground disturbance would be minimal. The proposed construction activities would take place outside of nesting season (February 15 to September 15) to mitigate impact to the local and migratory bird population. Impacts to plants, wildlife, or cultural resources would be minimal. There would be minimal impact to the streambed and streambank in the Ventura River. Therefore, no environmental regulatory permits would be required.
