Document Description
The proposed project involves stabilizing the northern bank of Stevens Creek by the construction of a reinforced concrete crib wall as described in the Swanson Hydrology and Geomorphology (2/28/2003) project plans. This concrete crib wall is a Caltrans standard "Type C" crib wall and is fourteen feet tall and thirty six feet long. The footing of the crib wall will be located approximately four feet below the base of the channel. The toe of the crib wall will be faced with a system of anchored root wads, stabilized by multi-sized rock-slope protection, and revegetated with native willow trees, as well as other native vegetation. The vegetated rock slope protection will require approximately 40 cubic yards of half-ton rock, one "aqua log," and two redwood logs. A mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) slope with a 1.5:1 slope will extend from the top of the crib wall to the top of the existing bank. The new MSE slope will match adjacent stream bank slopes, provide necessary stabilization to the fill area, and will be revegetated with native plants ecologically suitable to the local riparian corridor.
