The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number EPIMS-LAN-24504-R5, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the Oak Forest Estates Association.
The Project is limited to a one-time vegetation management treatment to the amount of dead wood around the Oak Forest Estates Mobile Home Park (property) to provide defensible space for protection from wildfire. The northern edge of the developed area is bordered by Triunfo Creek, a tributary to the Santa Clara River. The Project area
consists of a 15.28 acre area of the 200-foot defensible space buffer overlaps with Triunfo Creek. Dead wood and brush have accumulated within the Project area after the Woolsey fire, providing an excess amount of fuels around the property. Project activities will consist of removal of dead trees, other dead vegetation, large woody debris, and trash. Live vegetation removal will be limited to removal of the non-native fan palms. Project activities in the stream will be conducted by crews operating on foot and using hand tools. Personnel would not walk within or disturb aquatic habitats, which would be avoided during Project activities and no staff will enter the wetted channel.
