§ 923.8. Abandonment and Deactivation of Logging Roads and Landings.
All Logging Roads and Landings that are proposed to be removed from the Permanent Road Network shall be abandoned. All temporary Logging Roads and Landings that are to remain a part of the Permanent Road Network shall be deactivated annually prior to the Winter Period or upon completion of Timber Operations as specified in an approved Winter Period operating Plan pursuant to 14 CCR § 914.7(b). Other Logging Roads and Landings proposed to be deactivated shall comply with the standards specified in this section. Where Abandonment or Deactivation is required or proposed, specific measures to prevent Significant Sediment Discharge that apply the following general requirements shall be described in the Plan:
(a) All abandoned and deactivated Logging Roads and Landings shall be left in a condition that provides for long-term, maintenance-free function of drainage and Erosion Controls.
(b) Soil exposed by Abandonment or Deactivation operations shall be removed or stabilized as needed to minimize soil erosion and sediment transport.
(c) Logging Road Watercourse crossings, other drainage structures, and associated Fills shall be removed and stabilized in accordance with 14 CCR § 923.9, subsections (p)(1)-(4).
(d) Logging Roads to be abandoned or deactivated shall be blocked prior to the Winter Period, or upon completion of Timber Operations as specified in an approved Winter Period operating Plan pursuant to 14 CCR § 914.7(b), so that standard production four wheel-drive highway vehicles cannot pass the point of closure at the time of Abandonment or Deactivation. If the Logging Road is to be abandoned, then the blockage design shall be described in the Plan.
