Document Description
Project activities include performing emergency repairs to levee sites by replacing riprap, removal of flood debris and material placed by Caltrans in response to the December 2005 - January 2006 floods, and conducting erosion control and bank restoration measures on +/- 3,500 linear feet of levee slope along the Sacramento River. Approximately 60,000 +/- cubic yards of quarry stone mix and approximately 15,000 +/- cubic yards of imported agricultural soil will be placed within the project area. A crane-mounted barge, assisted by a work boat, will be utilized for sites that are most easily accessed by water (Sites 3-9, and 12-13) and a stinger-crane will be used where required for landside construction activities (Sites 1-2 and 10-11). Coir mats, geotextile fabric, and plantings will be placed by hand. Project construction is planned to occur in early December (12/1/06) through March of 2007, with inwater work occurring between December 2006 and January 2007.
