Document Description
This project consists of the stabilization of two gullies on an agricultural property in western Sonoma County. A system consisting of rock drops in series is proposed to stabilize the gullies. Nineteen rock drops on the western gully and eight rock drops on the eastern gully will be installed at varying intervals reducing the slope of the vegetated grassed waterway in between the rock drops at 2%. The channel will be re-graded to a vegetated grassed waterway with compact fill, armored with erosion control blanket and planted with a native grass erosion control seed mix. Approximately 3,400 feet of fencing will be installed to exclude livestock from the restoration site. Issuance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2008-0084-3 is pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
