Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration. DPR proposes to make repairs to two stock pond dams at Pacheco State Park in Merced County, California. Pacheco State Park, formerly a cattle ranch dating back to the 1840s, consists of many stock ponds used for past cattle grazing practices as well as the current grazing lease. During the winter 2017-rain events, Pig Pond and Bear Hide Lake suffered dam failure. The back face of Pig Pond dam failed, causing massive undermining of the dam face, while Bear Hide Lake dam breached causing the top 5 feet of the dam to wash away along with dam undermining.
