§ 136. Supplemental Standards for Yolo Bypass and Sutter Bypass.
It is the board's policy to permit agricultural land use and the development of suitable wetlands within the Yolo Bypass and Sutter Bypass. The supplemental standards protect the flood control functions of the Yolo and Sutter Bypasses, safeguard existing agricultural land use, and control the development of proposed wetlands.
(a) Final detailed plans for all construction, grading and planting must be submitted to and approved by the board prior to the start of work.
(b) A detailed operation and maintenance plan must be submitted to and approved by the board prior to the start of work.
(c) A profile of the existing levee crown roadway and access ramps that will be utilized for access to and from the construction area must be submitted to the board prior to the start of work.
(d) Any damage to the levee crown roadway or access ramps attributable to the construction or maintenance of croplands or wetlands must be promptly repaired by the permittee.
(e) The planting of vegetation or the impoundment of water is not permitted within one thousand (1,000) feet of the Fremont Weir structure.
(f) The planting of vegetation or the impoundment of water shall not be permitted in any area where there could be an adverse hydraulic impact.
(g) Irrigated and nonirrigated pastures and croplands are allowed without permit from the board when consistent with the board's flowage easements.
(h) The planting of vegetation is generally permitted for the development of native marsh, riparian vegetation, and wetlands.
(i) Rooted vegetation and aquatic beds of floating (nonrooted) or submerged vegetation are generally permitted to be established in ponded water.
(j) The depth of ponded water must be controlled to prevent the growth of unauthorized vegetation that could adversely affect the operation of the flood control project.
(k) No permanent berms or dikes are permitted above natural ground elevation without a detailed hydraulic analysis except where otherwise expressly provided for in reservations contained in easement deeds to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Drainage District.
(l) Required maintenance may include removal, clearing, thinning, and pruning of all vegetation directly or indirectly resulting from the permitted project.
