Document Description
The Permittee intends to alter the river to extract an average of 60,000 cubic yards of sand per year using a bar skimming method. The san removed will be the excess material that has accumulated by deposition from previous high flows. The skimming will remove the center of the bar, from downstream to upstream, leaving the two edges along the flow lines, making a horse show shaped bar, that will continue to deflect flows away from the bank and prevent the river from becoming wider and eroding the banks. This will also ensure that the low flow channel remains deep, resulting in a suitable passage corridor for migrating steelhead. Extraction will be conducted with bulldozers, loaders, dump trucks and a water truck. Mining will occur in the bed of the river from a 15.57 acre area, depending on the amount of available sand and demand. No impacts to the bank or to riparian vegetation. If the water table is contacted, the Permittee shall reestablished a cap of 5 feet above the water table and shall stay a minimum of 5 feet above the water tables at all times.
