UC Davis Arboretum Waterway Enhancement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
UC Davis proposes improvements to the Arboretum Waterway from Lake Spafford to the western most end of the waterway by the Equestrian Center to address inadequate water circulation, poor water quality conditions, and ongoing maintenance items. Project activities would involve dredging accumulated sediment within the Waterway, reshaped side slopes and existing concrete on the slopes would be removed. Existing drainage structures would be repaired and the project area would be vegetated with habitat appropriate landscaping. The project would have negligible or no expansion of existing Waterway.
