Owens Lake T2-1b Cattle Fence
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is proposing to install approximately 5,500 feet of barbed wire cattle fence along the western border of a managed vegetation dust control area (DCA) T2-1b. The proposed cattle fence is necessary to prevent cattle from the neighboring ranch from entering T2-1b. An existing privately-owned cattle fence borders a portion of the DCA, however it has multiple gaps and missing segments due to age. Under current conditions, cattle are able to enter the DCA and remove vegetation. Vegetative cover thresholds are required to meet regulatory compliance for dust emissions. The proposed cattle fence will be located within land leased to LADWP for DCA T2-1b. Ground disturbance activities would be monitored by qualified tribal monitors as a precautionary measure.
