Document Description
The Lake Perris water surface elevation was lowered in the fall of 2005 approximately 25 vertical feet as a result of dam seismic safety concerns. Environmental review and engineering design evaluations for remedial construction on the dam and lakebed are underway. This Notice of Exemption covers geotechnical studies proposed in the fall and winter of 2009 to collect information needed for planning this construction project. The studies will include one excavation test section to evaluate dewatering of the foundation, and two Cement Deep Soil Mixing (CDSM) test sections to verify that the CDSM equipment, procedures, and mix design will produce the required soil improvements.
