NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Replace the damaged restroom (vault toilet) located near Kentucky Creek and the Bridgeport Cemetery at South Yuba River State Park. Existing restroom was lifted and overturned due to high water from Kentucky Creek and South Yuba River during the January 2006 storm event. Dismantle and remove existing restroom and rehabilitate the immediate area. Install new manufactured CXT vault toilet across the highway on an existing parking lot, out of the flood plain and in a higher visitor use area. Restroom will meet ADA standards. ADA parking will be provided adjacent to the building. Excavate an area 6 feet deep by 6 feet wide by 12 feet in length for the new vault toilet. Build surface level with fill for installation of the vault toilet and to meet ADA requirements for parking and access. Pave parking and access path in front of and adjacent to restroom within a maximum two percent cross slope in all directions. No vegetation will be disturbed. Should the proposed action result in exposing or identifying significant archaeological properties, project work will be suspended until an appropriate data treatment program is designed and implemented by or under the supervision of a Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR)-qualified archaeologist.
