Document Description
California Department of Fish and Wildlife will replace an existing culvert under Pine Creek Road located on the Round Valley Wildlife Area. This project is limited to the removal of an existing failed 24” culvert and the in-kind replacement of a new 24” culvert. The culvert conveys water beneath Pine Creek Road from an irrigation ditch that receives water from Mill creek. The culvert will extend across the existing Pine Creek Road right-of-way to allow CDFW to access the culvert inlet/outlet for maintenance. Work will be within the existing roadway and shoulder of the road. Material removed during excavation of the existing culvert will be asphalt and old pipe which will be disposed of off-site. The new culvert will be covered with concrete slurry and new asphalt. The equipment that will be used includes a backhoe, dump truck, pick-up truck and hand tools. The work will be conducted while the ditch is dry. The work will be conducted between January 1 and March 15 to avoid potential for the disturbance of nesting birds. The project will not result in the taking of endangered, rare, or threatened plant or animal species, remove mature, healthy, scenic trees, or cause significant erosion and sedimentation of surface waters. The project is authorized by Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2020-0137-R6.
