NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project involves the placement of the three pairs of gabion weirs into the creek bed. The purpose of the gabion weirs is to reduce stream flow velocity to prevent further undercutting of the concrete-lined north bank. The gabion weir structures will be placed in the creek adjacent to the concrete-lined northern bank. The first pair of gabion weirs will be placed approximately 10 feet upstream of the culvert passing beneath Briar Place. The second and third pairs of gabion weirs will be placed approximately 60 feet and 120 feet, respectively, upstream of the first pair of gabion weirs. Gabion weir structures will be 3 feet deep and vary between 1 and 3 feet in height, depending on the placement in the creek. The width of the weirs is dependant upon the width of the channel, which ranges between 6 to 12 feet. Approximately 2 cubic yards of material will be removed from the stream to ensure gabion weirs are installed in a level position in the creek bed. Issuance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number R3-2001-0462 pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1601.
