|The Cache Creek Area Plan (CCAP), adopted by the Yolo County Board of Supervisors in 1996, is comprised of two separate, though complimentary, plans: the Off-Channel Mining Plan (OCMP) and Cache Creek Resources Management Plan (CCRMP). The plan area is approximately 14.5 miles along both banks of lower Cache Creek, from the Capay Diversion Dam to the town of Yolo, near Interstate 5. The CCAP underwent a comprehensive update in 2019, and the County took action to adopt a General Plan Amendment to update the CCAP on December 17, 2019, which can be referenced here: 2019 CCAP Update.
The OCMP is a scientifically based aggregate resource management plan that allows for off-channel mining adjacent to Cache Creek. It facilitated the development of a sufficient supply of aggregate to meet current and future market needs, while greatly increasing the level of environmental protection and monitoring. The OCMP identifies specific goals, objectives, and actions to guide mining activities that go well beyond the state-mandated requirements of the State Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA).
The CCRMP is a scientifically based river management plan that eliminated in-channel commercial mining, established an "improvement program" for implementing on-going projects to improve channel stability, encouraged restoration along the creek banks pursuant to a carefully developed policy and regulatory framework, and established a framework for future recreation along Cache Creek.
