Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game is executing Lake or Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2011-0122-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Butte County. The Project involves retrofitting of six of the eight bridge piers. This retrofitting will involve driving sheet piles into the Sacramento River approximately 3.5 feet from the existing pile cap and excavating approximately 15 feet of native material that is between the sheet pile and the existing pile cap. The area will then be de-watered and the water will be pumped to the shore for treatment. New 14 inch round steel pipe piles will be driven between the existing pile cap and the sheet pile. Each foundation retrofit will require 12 steel pipe piles, so a total of 72 permanent piles will be required for the Project. A concrete seal course will be placed over the steel pipe piles using the sheet pile as the form. The existing concrete pile cap will be enlarged to cover the new pile. The sheet pile will then be removed.
