Document Description
Perform percolation tests at Restroom #6 in Pioneer Camp Area at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park to determine soil suitability to sustain a leach field. Perc tests will be conducted by a qualified engineer and will require six test holes measuring 6-12" in diameter x 2-3' in depth and a 6 foot mantle test. Test results will determine the new leach field design and location in an area not to exceed 100 feet width by 120 feet length and 4 feet depth. A Native American monitor will be present during construction activities associated with the project. Should any project activity result in exposure of archaeological resources, work will cease until the find has been evaluated and an appropriate data treatment program is designed and implemented. Such cultural resource management activities will be conducted by or under the supervision of a California Department of Parks and Recreation qualified archaeologist.
