Document Description
The project is limited to eleven encroachments. One encroachment is for water diversion from a hydrologically connected pond. Water is diverted for irrigation. Work for the water diversion will include use and maintenance of the water diversion infrastructure. The ten other proposed encroachments are to upgrade failing road/stream crossings that are actively delivering sediment to Unnamed Tributaries of Cinch Creek. Work for these encroachments will include excavation, removal of the failing culverts, compaction of fill, and rock armoring as necessary to minimize erosion.
