Landscape Stabilization and Erosion Prevention Plan
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Federal and State Land (Del Norte County - General Plan)
1) Full Road Recontouring Road recontouring on approximately 93 mi. of abandoned, unstable, inner-gorge, mid-slope and ridge top service and skid roads within the Mill Creek Watersheds. Excavation of embankment fill from roads and stabilization of excavated materials on cutbench to fully recontour natural (pre-disturbance) topography. All roads proposed for treatment are currently impassable and could not serve as part of a transportation network.
2) Stream Crossing Removal, Removal of fill material from 351 stream crossings associated with the serve and skid roads. The majority of the crossings will have no flow during the construction and are typically small fill crossings. Most of the crossings are already partially removed and many are actively failing. Will include removal of road and landing fill from stream channels and floodplains. Placing excavated material against nearby cut slopes and recontouring to match the natural slopes will stabilize the crossings. Stream channel bed, banks, and adjacent slopes will be restored to their pre-crossing configuration. Longitudinal stream gradient will be reestablished through the crossing site.
