Document Description
In December 2019, Southern California Edison (SCE) performed road grading and vegetation management along Tunnel Trail in the Mission Canyon area of Santa Barbara County, California (December 2019 work). The December 2019 work resulted in an unauthorized discharge of material to Mission Creek and the adjacent upland habitats. The unauthorized activities in December 2019 caused impacts to Mission Creek and its associated fish and wildlife resources and the native habitats on which they depend. SCE proposes the Project to satisfy its obligation to address impacts associated with the December 2019 work per a December 2020 settlement agreement between SCE and the Santa Barbara County District Attorney. The Project addresses habitat restoration and remediation of impacts to native habitats, trees, sensitive plants and wildlife, and waters of Mission Creek. It includes removal of all recoverable sidecast material at the Project site at the time of construction, restoration of stream flows, stabilization of creek bank, repair of habitat features such as pools within the stream bed, remediation of impacts to trees and sensitive plants, berm stabilization, and restoration of impacted habitats. The Project objectives are the removal of all recoverable sidecast material remaining on the Project site and restoration of impacted habitat within the Project area, including Mission Creek stream habitat, such that it may support native fish use to levels that existed prior to the December 2019 work.
