The proposed project includes constructing an approximate 120-foot-long Terramesh system retaining wall placing Terramesh geo-textile fabric on the upper areas of the wall/bank top-of-bank extending down to the estimated Ordinary High Water Mark (OHW). Below OHW, a combination of rock rip rap (approximately 2400 cubic feet) and Mac-Tex and Terramesh geo-textile fabric will be utilized to stabilize the toe of the structure.

The applicant expects to be able to perform all construction from top of bank, not entering the stream channel or de-watering an area within the vicinity of the project. Issuance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2006-0505-3 is pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
