Within 14 days of the creation of the proceeding, the Arbitration Committee makes a decision on the safeguards to be included in the final agreement. The arbitration committee`s decision is binding on both CDFW and the developer. However, under section 1604, any party can confirm, correct or clean up the decision before the Tribunal. If the proponent and the CDFW agree on the protection measures for the protection and conservation of fish and wildlife resources, it is the CDFW that adopts a final agreement. See Element 19-CA-h.17 – Final Streambed/Lakebed Alteration Agreement, below. Within 30 days of receiving the proposed contract, the proponent must indicate in writing to the CDFW whether it accepts the protection measures of the fish and wild plant protection project. At the same time as notifying the Streambed or Lakebed change, the developer must submit payment for the applicable fees to CDFW. The royalty amount is based on a differentiated pricing plan drawn up by the director of CDFW, which covers the total cost of CDFW, among other things, for the completion of project inspections and the preparation and submission of agreements to the developer. The fee for each streambed or lakebed parking parking change no more than five thousand dollars ($5,000). Cal. Fish – Game Code No. 1602 (a) (3), 1609. Please note that “every river, stream or lake” includes those that are episodic (they are dry for periods) as well as those that are multi-year (they circulate throughout the year).
These include volatile streams, desert water and streams with an underground river. It may also apply to work done in the flood zone of a body of water. If CDFW does not issue a draft contract within 60 days of receiving the developer`s notice of the modification of the creek or lake bed, the developer may proceed with the project as described in the notification, including all fish and wildlife resource protection measures. Cal. Fish – Game Code Nr. 1602 (a) (4) (D). For the purpose of the notification of modification for creek beds or seabeds, the term “flow” includes all multi-year, volatile and intermittent streams. If the developer approves the safeguards contained in the draft contract, the developer must return a signed copy of the agreement to CDFW. Until further notice, CDFW will accept paper notifications for other types of contracts such as control extraction, gravel/sand/rock extraction, routine maintenance and wood harvesting. The CDFW will not reach a final agreement on the amendment of Streambed/Lakebed until the main CEQA agency has published or adopted a final document of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and all applicable royalties are paid in full.
