Proposal to grade 5,500 cubic yards of earth and install twenty-four horizontal drains in order to stabilize the hillside in preparation for realignment and repair of Amesti Road, which sustained land slide damage caused by excessive ground water and El Nino storms.

This project requires a Grading Permit and Riparian Exception. Project area is located on Amesti Road, 0.4 miles south of Browns Valley Road, in the Eureka Canyon area.
