NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project includes replacing an existing culvert with a new 10 foot x 8 foot culvert that is in-line with creek flow providing for better fish passage. The existing culvert will be abandoned in-place and filled to the point where it intersects with the new culvert. The new culvert, once in place, will be backfilled with approximately 3 feet of river rock and other native materials. The banks on both sides of the creek will be graded to match original grade and rock slope protection (rip rap) will be placed at the in-let and out-let of the culvert. Temporary fill will be placed in the stream on the west side to accomodate the roadway while the culvert is being replaced. All temporary materials will be removed upon project completion. The creek is dry during the summer months and all work will occur while the creek is dry. Equipment will need to enter the dry creek bed to complete the work. Bulldozers, backhoes and compactors are typical pieces of heavy equipment that may be used for this project. Some vegetation may need to be removed to provide access to the channel.
