Document Description
The Project would remove accumulated sediment immediately upstream and downstream from an existing concrete "Arizona" crossing on Paso Robles Creek. A rubber-tired backhoe would be used to scoop accumulated sediment for a distance of approximately 100 feet downstream from the concrete apron on the downstream side of the crossing. Sediment would be removed to a depth approximately equal to that of the apron. Sediment would be removed for approximately 100 feet from the crossing's upstream apron to a depth approximately equal to that of the apron. Crew with hand tools would remove sediment that may have accumulated in one of three pipe culverts contained in the Arizona crossing. All removed sediment would be placed in a truck and distributed on the Operator's property in a location where it cannot reenter the stream channel. The channel would be left relatively with no unnatural pools, mounds, or other features. No vegetation would be removed. The Project would be completed only when the site is dry and devoid of surface flow.
