Description: The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Programmatic Streambed Alteration Agreement allows repetitive work to be conducted in and adjacent to streams without the need to repeat the application and approval process for impacts to waters of the United States. The agreement functions like a Section 404 Regional General Permit, but addresses the state review process. Similar classes of work are combined on a local or regional basis, matching the State Department of Fish and Game Office jurisdiction and Caltrans Office jurisdiction, enabling both parties to be in direct control of all aspects of the process.

Under this agreement, Caltrans found that attempting agreements based on a larger geographic area resulted in delays and unwieldy requirements, because, in the words of Caltrans’ Chief of Biology and Technical Assistance, “each office ended up adding items to the point where the programmatics became too cumbersome to implement.” The smaller regions covered by the programmatic agreement facilitate understandings on a person-to-person basis.

Caltrans has benefited by receiving faster response times from the California Department of Fish & Game on time-sensitive maintenance work. Caltrans has noted lower per-project costs as a result. The programmatic agreement benefited Fish & Game by better managing their workload from Caltrans, and allowing more time to focus on higher impact projects. Finally, aquatic resources have benefited through more consistent management and greater attention to cumulative effects.
