Test Wells - Armstrong Redwoods

NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Drill up to six test wells within Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve to identify an adequate water source for the development of a future potential water well to supply a portion of public use facilities. Each site will be accessed by truck with a mounted drill rig; ground disturbance will be approximately one square foot and all drilling fluids will be self-contained using a shaker machine with an above ground storage device. If any previously-undisturbed soil is excavated (outside the septic tanks), park staff will monitor for signs of archaeological remains (e.g. white sea shell, stone tools, etc.). If any archaeological remains are encountered, work shall be immediately halted within 30 feet of any such find until a DPR-qualified archaeologist has evaluated the material and determined a course of action to be implemented before work at the site may resume.
