Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement EPIMS Notification No. EPIMS-MEN-42315-R1C, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Eric Vogt, representing Woodman Creek Association. The project is limited to one (1) encroachment to be implemented in two (2) phases. The Stream Crossing encroachment is to winterize the existing crossing under Phase 1 and replace the existing crossing with an open bottom stream crossing configuration that allows unrestricted passage of all life stages of fish and accommodates high flows with associated debris and materials up to and including 100-year flood events under Phase 2. Work under Phase 1 will include removing rip rap outside the wetted stream channel, pulling back the left (north) stream bank above the bankfull channel to a 3:1 horizontal to vertical slop, rock armoring the left bank slope with rip rap and graded rock armor, installing natural fabric and rocking the stream crossing road and fillslope, and hydrologically disconnecting the road and slopes from the stream. Phase 2 will include removing the existing crossing with associated bank and channel armoring, and installing a stream crossing configuration designed by a State of California qualified license professional with written design approval by CDFW.
