Water right application A030558 was filed with the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board), Division of Water Rights (Division) on August 13, 1996, to divert water from an unnamed stream tributary to Tolay Creek thence San Pablo Bay.

The season of diversion is from January 1 through March 31 of each year. Diverted water must be used for irrigation for both cultivation and restoration, stockwatering, recreational, fish and wildlife preservation and enhancement, restoration, fire protection, and dust control.

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Existing Facilities (Section 15301) and Minor Alterations to Land (Section 15304)
Reasons for Exemption
All project facilities and operations were existing as of the date of application, which is the date that the State Water Board began its environmental review (CEQA Baseline). Planned restoration activities do not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. Because the activities are restorative in nature, they do not have potential to be significant.
