The Yolo County Cache Creek Area Plan is an award winning rivershed management plan originally adopted in 1996 that integrates environmental and economic goals related to the aggregate mining industry. For over 20 years, this plan has been implemented by Yolo County in partnership with local aggregate resources producers, regulatory agencies, landowners, and other stakeholders.
The CCAP includes the Off-Channel Mining Plan (OCMP) which is an aggregate resources management plan and the Cache Creek Resources Management Plan (CCRMP) which is a creek restoration plan, and is implemented by several regulatory ordinances. The CCAP is based on the concept of adaptive management, and relies on ongoing detailed monitoring, analysis, and reevaluation. A comprehensive ten-year review is mandatory. The CCAP Update constitutes the second mandatory ten-year program review.
Based on the results of the 2017 Technical Studies (see below) and over 20-years of monitoring, analysis, and re-evaluation, the County is proposing package of updates, clarifications, and corrections to the program.
