Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement EPIMS Notification No. EPIMS-TEH-38117-R1I, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Gary Gabel. The project includes the placement of 16-inch minimum (200-pound) rock slope protection (RSP) along the bank of the Sacramento River to provide protection against further bank erosion on the project parcel. Prior to the placement of RSP, the bank will be excavated to form a slope of 1.4:1. Vegetation removal will be limited to sedges and non-native blackberry (mature native trees shall not be removed). Once the bank is sloped, erosion control fabric will be placed by hand. RSP will be placed by excavator bucket working from the top of the bank and will be installed approximately 2.5-feet thick. Native willow pole cuttings will be planted within the RSP and through the fabric to provide additional stabilization and refuge for aquatic species. A total of 93 cubic yards of RSP will be placed on the streambank, 52 cubic yards of which will be below the ordinary high-water mark (Project).
