The following are the minimum requirements for ‘Subdivision Encroachments'. These shall be met in addition to any other requirements for an encroachment permit as set forth in these regulations. Each application will be evaluated on an individual basis to ensure the safety and integrity of the State Water Project's facilities and right-of-way, and the safety of the public.
(a) Permanent structures are not permitted within the Department's right-of-way.
(b) The permittee shall not divert surface run off toward the Department's open canal embankments. The surface run off shall be stored and collected outside the Department's right-of-way. Lined drainage channels shall be designed to transfer flow from the collection basins to the Department's existing cross drainage facilities and cross as close as practical to a ninety (90) degree crossing.
(c) Subdivision lots that incorporate Department right-of-way shall not affect the Department's ability to operate, maintain or modify the State Water Project.

(e) The Department may require setback provisions within the Department's right-of-way to be included in the encroachment permit.
(f) Any gates controlling access to the Department's right-of-way shall be at least sixteen (16) feet wide. Where the gates are to be locked the Department shall have access for ingress and egress at all times for the duration of the encroachment permit. The permittee shall immediately provide the Department with a current key, or an updated combination or access code at all times.
