Document Description
The project has two main elements: 1) Clear 14 feet by 20 feet of dense vegetation from a storm drain off of Hollister Avenue; 2) Channel improvements to Finestone Channel to improve capacity to a 25 year event. The channel improvement has three main elements: 1) Replace three (one 30 inch and one 36 inch) culverts with a double box culvert with 5 foot x 5 foot cells; 2) Channel widening to a uniform width of 8 feet from the culverts to approximately 500 feet east; 3) Shallow berm placement for approximately 900 feet beyond the terminus of the channel widening. The project also includes native riparian and wetland restoration, and the grading of a small storm drain near the new culverts as well as 8,400 square feet of overlay pavement on Firestone Road.
