Dear Mr. Shauers:

We have reviewed the above-referenced variance request and approve your request, based on the following factor:

- All applicable mitigation measures for the project shall be implemented at the subject location.

- Prior to the commencement of construction, a permit shall be secured from the LACFCD for the use of their right-of-way. A copy of the subject permit shall be immediately forwarded to the Lead Environmental Monitor upon receipt.

- As proposed, a Native American monitor shall be present during construction. If any signs of cultural resources are identified, work shall cease immediately, and the site shall be evaluated using the procedures in the Cultural Resources Management Plan.

- As proposed, a full-time monitor for environmental contamination shall be present during the duration of construction of the realignment.

- As proposed, the following fueling kit shall be installed around each piece of equipment fueled on the proposed site. The kit shall consist of an 8 by 8-foot area of plastic sheeting placed underneath or adjacent to the vehicle and the refueling truck. A 3 by 3-foot by 6-inch deep pan shall be placed underneath the vehicle being refueled. Each refueling truck shall also be equipped with automatic shutoff nozzles to prevent spillage from overtopping. In addition, absorbent material shall be placed around the filler pipe and the fueler shall be present throughout the entire fueling operation.

- Each refueling truck shall contain a fully stocked spill containment kit which includes absorbent pads, shovels, and appropriate spill containers.

- The subject realignment shall be relandscaped in coordination with the LACFCD.

- Fencing along the flood control channel shall be replaced in coordination with the LACFCD.

- Implementation of this variance in accordance with the provisions noted above shall be verified on a random basis by a CPUC/ANF Environmental Monitor.
