Erosion Repair Projects on North Fork Yuba River
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Sierra County proposes to repair streambank erosion caused by high water flows occurring during January 2006. Three specific locations have been identified for repair: (1) North Fork Yuba River at Old Toll Bridge Road; (2) North Fork Yuba River at the North Fork Diversion Structure; and (3) North Fork Yuba River at Jim Crow Canyon. The Old Toll Bridge Road and Jim Crow Canyon repair designs utilize traditional rock slope protection materials (riprap). The repair design for the North Fork Diversion Structure site specified the use of grouted riprap. The Department met with Sierra County officials and express concern for the environmental impact of using grouted riprap. The Department is requiring Sierra County to provide an alternate design to achieve the project goals.
