The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Streambed Alteration Agreement (1600-2020-0159-R5), pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 1602, to the project Applicant, Southern California Gas Company represented by Julio Gonzalez. Permittee plans to remove and abandon 2,000 linear feet of Line 80, an existing decommissioned natural gas line on Permittee’s property within Goleta Slough.

All vegetation removed or damaged through project activities will be replaced following the restoration plan submitted with the Notification. Equipment proposed to complete the overall project includes pick-up truck, 3-axle lowbed tractor, air compressor, dump truck, backhoe-compaction, concrete equipment saw, light tower, 2-ton street sweeper, trailer-office, sideboom, backhoe-420, 2-ton flatbed (2-wheel drive), 3-axle water truck, arrowboard, excavator-cat 324 size, weld rigs, concrete mixer truck, mud pump, and trench traffic plates.
