Discussions for

Stakeholder Engagement Strategy


Management Questions/Issues


Existing Conditions (e.g. where are the
hardened channels?)


Issues to be Addressed through the
Planning Process (e.g., clarify sensitive
areas along the creeks)


Collective Vision for Each Watershed


District Staff Document?


Board Linkage?


WRPC Linkage?


Other key stakehol
ders?

Overall Approach

for Synthesizing Existing Information


Coarse Scale


Main characteristics of each Watershed


Provide foundation for understanding stewardship
issues, problems, or opportunities


Provide basis for selection of more detailed analysis
objectives or areas (e.g., watersheds or creeks
-

3)


Finer Scale


Field Work (new data) for the areas identified


Information for conceptual design solutions

Coarse Scale Analysis


Data Compilation


WMI Characterization Report


WMI Assessment Reports


FAHCE Summary Report


SCVURPPP Sediment Impairment Report


GIS Layers


land ownership, zoning, existing and historical
land use, imperviousness, mining


Analysis


Longitudinal Profiles 3
rd

Order
+

streams (e.g., main stem,
tributaries)


Geomorphic Process Domains; Potential Erosion


Landslide Susceptibility


Identify Data Gaps And Strategize How to Deal with These
data gaps

Proposed Finer Scale Analysis


Based on a refined version of model used in Coyote
Creek (combined HGM/IBI)


Fill in the Data Gaps for watershed or creeks
selected or identified


Model provides more detailed functional analysis
than previously available


Model uses existing and newly collected field data


Develop conceptual design solutions

Watershed Summary Tables


Define Impacts from various projects,
activities, and policies


Define functional areas for analysis


Identify key issues and management
questions


Relates issues and indicators to District
Ends policies

Summary of Existing Projects Impacting Reaches within Watershed Area Unit Watersheds

The stressors listed below influence the capacities of stre
am ecosystem functions. The magnitude and frequency of the stressor and associated stresses can be used to interpret existing conditions. Actions associated with
conservation solutions can be used to predict the trajectory of future conditions. Actions
associated with prospective conservation solutions (e.g., unplanned, potential actions that we suggest) may be used to predict the potential
trajectory of conditions.
