Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The proposed action is the Upper York Creek Ecosystem Restoration Project at the Upper York Creek Dam and Reservoir (UYCD), also referred to as the Upper St. Helena Dam. The project sponsors, the City of St. Helena (City) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, San Francisco District, South Pacific Division (Corps), propose to remove or modify the dam and appurtenances, remove accumulated sediment, and restore the local ecology of York Creek. The City is serving as Lead Agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and has prepared this Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). The purpose of the DEIR is to inform public agency decision-makers and the general public of the significant environmental effects of the project, to identify ways to minimize the significant effects, and to describe reasonable alternatives to the project (CCR §15121).
