||To verify that the Project enhances geomorphic and hydrologic functioning as desired, theApplicant shall have a qualified fluvial geomorphologist perform geomorphic and hydrologic monitoring for a minimum of five years as described in the Application received on June 26, 2013. In addition, photographs shall be taken of (1) the cascade structure looking down from the road surface above the cascade structure, (2) the cascade structure looking up from 10 to 15 feet downstream of the structure, (3) each of the pools within the cascade structure, (4) the channel between the cascade structure and the rockvane, (5) the rock vane, and (6) any signs of erosion, sedimentation, or blockages within the creek. The performance criteria for geomorphic and hydrologic function shall be the following: a. No observed signs of erosion that threatens the integrity of the culverts, rock cascade structure, and/or rock vane (i.e., scarps, scour, or piping that threaten to flank or undermine the culverts, cascade structure or rock vane); b. No observed signs of sediment aggradation that threatens the pools or rock vane (i.e., filling of a pool or pools that threatens to reduce their depth to that of the surrounding rock structure, or accumulation of sediment behind the rock vane that threatens to reroute water around the structure); c. No change in channel dimensions equal to or greater than 10 percent of the channel dimensions indicated in the as-built surveys or previous monitoring surveys; and d. No conditions that block the channel and threaten channel and floodplain structure or hydraulic function. If these performance criteria are not achieved, an evaluation of the cause shall be conducted and appropriate adaptive management measures identified and implemented in consultation with the appropriate agencies, including but not limited to, the Water Board. Furthermore, the evaluation of the cause of the failure shall include, but not be limited to, the results from the current and previously performed geomorphic assessments, storm event data, and a survey of the stream-bed profile conducted using, at a minimum, a stadia rod. Lastly, the monitoring period shall be extended until the geomorphic and hydrologic performance criteria have been achieved. 7. To verify that the Project successfully establishes vegetation, the Applicant shall have a qualified biologist monitor vegetation cover on an annual basis for a minimum of five years. The performance criteria for vegetation establishment shall include the following: a. Year 1: 5 percent or greater absolute cover of native species; b. Year 2: 10 percent or greater absolute cover of native species; c. Year 3: 25 percent or greater absolute cover of native species; d. Year 4: 40 percent or greater absolute cover of native species; e. Year 5: 60 percent or greater absolute cover of native species; and f. All Years: 75 percent survival of planted vegetation. If these performance criteria are not achieved, additional plants must be installed and monitored for an additional five years from the date of replanting. Replacement plantings are subject to the same performance criteria as the initial plantings. In addition, if supplemental watering (i.e., irrigation) is necessary beyond the first 2 years to ensure establishment of vegetation, the monitoring period shall be extended for a minimum of three years after cessation of supplemental watering. 8. Monitoring reports shall be submitted to the Water Board by June 1st of each year. Monitoring reports shall be submitted either by uploading them to the EcoAtlas website at http://ecoatlas.org/regions/ecoregion/bay-delta/projects or via mail (see the address on the letterhead), and shall summarize each year’s monitoring results, including the need for any remedial actions. The annual reports shall also compare data to previous years and describe progress towards meeting final success criteria. The Year 5 monitoring report shall be a comprehensive final report that includes summaries of the monitoring data, representative photos, and maps. The final report shall also document if the site meets the final performance criteria listed in Condition Nos. 6 and 7 above. If any criterion is not met in any year, the report shall include the remedial measures that will be implemented and specify extension of the monitoring period in accordance with either or both Condition Nos. 6 and 7 above.
