NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Immediate repair of a failed gabion retaining wall that confines Little Chico Creek, on Humboldt Road directly across from the City of Chico Police Facility. The bank failure caused three gabions and surrounding bank material to descend into the channel. The City is proposing to repair the 15-foot bank failure by excavating approximately 4-feet below the bottom of the existing creek bed, placing a solid rock bedding of 1/4 ton rocks (voids filled with 3" to 6" rock cobble), and stacking four levels of gabions.
