Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement EPIMS Notification EPIMS - MOO-44253, to Mono County (Permittee), pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code. The Project is limited to the in-kind replacement of two existing corrugated metal pipe (CMP) 35"x24" arch pipe and 36" in diameter culverts on Lone Company Irrigation Ditch with new CMP culverts crossing Eastside Lane at two locations. Each culvert will be excavated using one of the following methodologies: the existing pavement will be sawcut at the width of the trench (approx. 5’ in width), each culvert will then be replaced in-kind, the pavement will be pulverized after the culvert is installed then the road will be paved over. Alternatively, the pavement will be pulverized at each culvert location first, then each culvert will be replaced in-kind concurrently with the rehabilitation work prior to paving. The process for replacing the existing asphalt pavement will be Full Depth Reclamation. This process involves a grinder/pulverizing machine that will pulverize the existing pavement and base material to a depth of approximately 6 inches. This pulverized asphalt and base material is then used in-place to create a new base grade for new road asphalt. Equipment to be used includes an excavator, backhoe, Rammax, blade/grader, sheepsfoot roller, smooth drum vibratory roller, concrete truck, and jumping jack. The Project will impact 0.005 acre of riparian vegetation and resources subject to Fish and Game Code section 1602. Impacts will result from the replacement of two CMP culverts caused by vegetation disturbance and various ground disturbing activities such as excavation, grading, and compaction required for the replacement of the two CMP culverts. No vegetation will be removed as part of this Project. This Agreement authorizes a total impact of 0.005 acres to Fish and Game Code section 1602 resources.
