Document Description
Streaminders is applying for a Floodplain Development Permit in conjunction with floodplain creation and riparian enhancement on the north side of Big Chico Creek. Floodplain creation will take place immediately west of the State Highway 32 Nord Avenue Bridge, while riparian enhancement will occur from the bridge to a point approximately 1/3 mile downstream. The project's purpose is to enhance the area's ecological integrity and recreational amenities by increasing bank stability, expanding Big Chico Creek's carrying capacity, and restoring native vegetation. The work, to take place in October 2006, involves three tasks: (1) excavation of an esimated 1,800 cubic yards of fill from the north bank of Big Chico Creek; (2) re-contouring of the excavation site to create an expanded floodplain; and (3) removal of selected exotic vegetation and re-vegetation with appropriate native riparian plants.
