The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement EPIMS Notification No. EPIMS-VEN-24159-R5, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Southern California Edison (SCE) as represented by Hazem Gabr.
The Project involves the maintenance of vegetation to maintain set clearance distances between SCE power lines. The Project will take place along a portion of 66kV Mandalay San Miguel Circuit and a portion of SCE’s 220kV Mandalay-Santa Clara No. 1, No. 2, No 3., and No. 4 Circuits. Prior to any Project activities, field surveys will be conducted to collect location, quantity, and species data on any trees or other vegetation that enter the clearance distances and need to be trimmed or removed. Project activities will impact a total of no more than 9.1 acres of willow riparian woodland and forest habitat. Staging areas will be located on established access roads. All trimmed material will be hauled out of the Project area to a chipper for processing. The crew will access the site by foot, or from a bucket truck staged on the existing road or shoulder. Work will be conducted using hand-operated equipment and may include hand pruners, pruning saws, chainsaws, and weed whackers.
