Project: Lower Putah Creek Restoration Project – Upper Reach Project
Program Location: Putah Creek between the Putah Diversion Dam and the western boundary of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area.
Description of the Proposed Project: The project proposes to restore and enhance geomorphological and ecological function on approximately 24.2 miles of Putah Creek between the Putah Diversion Dam and the western boundary of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area. Project activities include the following: Modify channel geometry, construct grade/flow control structures, stabilize channel banks, improve fish spawning gravel, fill abandoned gravel pits, remove invasive vegetation, plant native vegetation, irrigate native vegetation sites, manage non-native vegetation at restored sites, and maintain long-term access points.
Significant Environmental Effects: The project will have potentially significant impacts to noise levels during construction. The project will have no long-term impacts to noise levels. The mitigation measures in the PEIR will reduce all other environmental impacts to less-than-significant.
Public Review Period: The public review and comment period will be from June 3, 2016 to July 22, 2016. Written comments or questions should be mailed to: Solano County Water Agency, Putah Creek PEIR, 810 Vaca Valley Parkway, Suite 203, Vacaville, CA 95688.
