Strengthen London Lake Outflow Pipe
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Strengthen the existing 6" valve and drainage pipe at the historic London Lake dam that flows into Kohler Creek at Jack London State Historic Park to assure that the water does not overtop the dam during high rainfall events and lead to catastrophic dam failure. Work will place a layer of drain rock in the creek to armor the existing pipe and a thin layer of drain rock over the pipe to prevent scouring and stream damage. Water release will be coordinated with effected down-stream land owners and a fish barrier located downstream from the pipe outlet will prevent non-native fish in the lake from entering Kohler Creek during water release. Project supports natural resource management and protects public safety.
