Environmental Review 

The Conservancy is often times the Lead Agency for Participating Special Entity projects. Being the Lead Agency means overseeing the environmental review process for all projects requiring a decision to be made at the discretion of the Conservancy's Governing Board. The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is the environmental review process and provides a means to inform decision-makers about potential environmental impacts that would result from a project.

June 28, 2021 Marsh Creek Restoration and Instream Dam Improvement Project Improvements include cutting and removing four large sections of the concrete dam, filling and reshaping the eroded plunge pool and adjacent northern upstream (west of the dam) and northern downstream (east of the dam) banks to focus streamflow back towards the centerline of the stream channel and through the newly cut dam sections. The southern bank on the downstream side of the dam would be filled with soil and reinforced to protect archaeological/cultural resources. The rebuilt and reshaped banks would be lined with rock and riparian plantings to armor the newly restored banks. NOD - Marsh Creek Restoration and Instream Dam Improvement Project (PDF)
