Repair of 1600 feet by up to 15 feet of eroded levee. The existing levee will be graded on the top and the bayward face to establish a consistent slope. Geotextile fabric will be placed on the graded soil slope and anchored, at the top and toe. A total of 1,333 cubic yards of 1/2 to 1/4 ton rock slope protection will be placed on the fabric to a depth ranging from two feet (top) and three feet (toe).
Severe winter storms caused high tides and high winds, which severely eroded the levee that separates the Simpson Timber Company, Brainard Facility from the Bay. This situation leaves the levee highly vulnerable to breaching and tidal inundation.
