Document Description
Butte County (County) proposes to enter a Streambed Alteration Agreement with CDFW to implement a routine maintenance program within improved and unimproved stream channels and drainage facilities and associated CDFW jurisdictional areas within 200 feet of County-maintained roads. The County anticipates completing approximately 20 to 30 maintenance projects a year. Routine maintenance would involve using various types of equipment including pickup trucks, and hand tools (such as chainsaws, string trimmers, loppers, shovels, and rakes). It may occasionally require heavy-duty construction equipment, including, but not limited to backhoes, excavators, loaders, skid steers, haul trucks, and compactors. Maintenance activities will include removal, replacement, or repair of facilities; channel alignment maintenance; conversion of concrete-lined channels; debris or obstruction removal; silt, sand, or sediment removal; vegetation control in channels or on banks; goat/sheep grazing; minor erosion control work; repair of previous erosion control work; bridge washing, graffiti removal, painting; water diversions; and geotechnical sampling and subsurface cultural resource sensitivity testing.
