As part of the permit requirements, an Initial Report of Construction was <br />submitted to Lahontan by December 31, 2013. The project is a ½‐mile paved pedestrian and bike <br />trail that is built along the north side of Brockway Road between the Truckee River Regional Park <br />and “The Rock” commercial complex. The project impacted 0.035 acres of wetlands. In order to <br />mitigate the wetland impacts of the new trail, the project installed two new areas of wetlands for a <br />total mitigated area of 0.064 Acres. <br /> <br />One of the mitigation measures was the removal of an existing culvert along the wetland ditch. <br />Removing the 35 foot long culvert re‐established 0.008 acre of wetlands in the ditch and prevents <br />vehicles from entering the interior of the property where wetlands and Plumas ivesia (a rare plant) <br />occur. This further protects the existing 0.5 acres of seasonal wetland at the site. The Town did <br />authorize a field change to the erosion control in this area for installation of biodegradable mats by <br />North American Green SC150BN on the banks of the channel above the water line to further prevent <br />erosion into the stream and increase the re‐vegetation success. The area was hydroseeded prior to <br />mat installation. Sedge plugs were replanted along the bottom of the channel to promote faster re‐ <br />vegetation of this area. <br /> <br />The second area of mitigation involved removal of a pile of old dredged material adjacent to the <br />wetland channel and excavating approximately 2 feet below native grade in this area. Surface <br />vegetation was not able to be salvaged for replanting in the excavation due to the sparse existing <br />vegetation. The area was re‐vegetated with the wetland seed mix. This area establishes 0.056 acres <br />of wetland within the wet meadow that was previously degraded. <br />
