Document Description
Issue Right of Entry permit to the non-profit organization, LandPaths, for the Willow Creek Roads Treatment Project by which, within the new Willow Creek acquisition of Sonoma of Coast State Beach, 5.3 miles of back country logging/ranch road will be upgraded and 6.7 miles will be decommissioned with some of the fill placed on the road bed, called "in place outslope" (IPOS). Less than one mile of other decommissioned roads will receive treatment without IPOS. Treatment of upgraded roads will include: - Installation of appropriately sized culverts (culverts intended to withstand the 100-year flood flow) at stream crossings. - Installation of critical dips at stream crossings to prevent stream diversions. - Installation of "trash racks" upstream of culverts to prevent plugging. - Armoring fillslopes with rip-rap at stream crossings to improve stability. - Outsloping roads to improve surface drainage. - Installation of rolling dips to improve road drainage. Treatment of IPOS segments of road will include: - Excavation of soil at stream crossings. - "Ripping" road surfaces to improve drainage. - Placement of a portion of the fillslope on the road surface near the cut bank to resemble pre-road contours. Treatment of decommissioned roads may include: - Excavation of soil at stream crossings and installation of cross road drains to improve road drainage and prevent vehicle access.
