Document Description
Revised location to drill a test hole to develop and connect a well for Mill Creek Campground at Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park. The new proposed well site is completely within the developed area of Campsite #26, in Mill Creek Campground. The well will replace the infiltration gallery that currently supplies water from directly below the east fork of Mill Creek. Based on the results of drilling, the well will be developed and connected to the present water system serving the unit's public facilities. Ground disturbance will involve the drilling of the well and the associated temporary surface disturbance where the drill rig sits. A silt-fenced directional flume will direct drilling slurry to a straw bale containment basin to prevent it from moving off site. Upon completion, all resulting material will be removed to a disposal site away from all drainage potential. Drilling will be monitored by a DPR-qualified archaeologist to ensure protection of any potential cultural resources encountered. This project will beneficially affect surface water and the flora and fauna dependent upon it.
