Document Description
The project consists of the stabilization of two gullies (1000' and 600') on an agricultural property in western Sonoma County. A system consisting of rock drops in series is proposed to stabilize both gullies. Nineteen rock drops in 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 to 2%. The channel will be re-graded to a vegetated grassed waterway with compacted fill, armored with erosion control blanket and planted with a native grass erosion control seed mix. Approximately 3,400' of fencing will be installed to exclude livestock from the restoration site.
