Instream Construction Work Window

Construction will occur between June 15 and October 31. Revegetation activities, including soil preparation, may extend beyond October 31, if necessary, to better ensure successful plant establishment during the onset of winter precipitation. If precipitation greater than one inch is forecast during the June 15 – October 31 work window, the RC must be notified, implementation work must stop, and erosion control BMP’s must be implemented. Extensions of this work window will be considered on a case-by-case basis only if justified and if precipitation sufficient to produce runoff is not forecast to occur during any of the above activities, the effects of this action are not outside the effects analyzed in the BA, and if approved by the RC, Corps and NMFS
