NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT AN
Project Title: Antelope Dam Weir Sediment Removal Project
The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) Oroville Field Division has prepared and intends to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the proposed project in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and State CEQA Guidelines
Project Location: The proposed project is located on Indian Creek just below the outlet of Antelope Lake in Plumas County. Indian Creek is a tributary to the Feather River. It is located within the Antelope Lake 7.5 minute U.S.G.S. Quadrangle in Section 22 of T27N, R12E at elevation 4920 feet. The Antelope Dam Weir is approximately 22 miles northeast of Taylorsville and 30 miles northeast of the intersection of Highway 70 and Highway 89.
Project Description: The project proposes to remove approximately 175 cubic yards of accumulated sediment, debris and emergent vegetation from the upstream side of the outlet measurement weir located below Antelope Dam.
Environmental Review Process: DWR has prepared an initial study/proposed mitigated negative declaration (IS/MND) on the proposed project in accordance with the requirements of CEQA. The IS/MND describes the proposed Antelope Dam Weir Sediment Removal Project and provides an assessment of the project's potential impacts on the environment. The IS/MND concludes that any potentially significant impacts that may result from the proposed project can be avoided, eliminated, or reduced to a level that is less than significant by the adoption and implementation of specified mitigation measures.
Public Review Period: The IS/MND is being circulated for public review and comment for a review period of 30 days starting January 10, 2011. Written comments should be submitted and received at the following address no later than close of business (3:30 p.m.) on February 9, 2011.
