Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed Project would excavate trenches at one (1) to three (3) locations each along the bank of Tank Farm Creek and the bank of the East Fork of San Luis Obispo Creek to determine if cultural artifacts are present at the sites. A backhoe or excavator would be used to create trenches approximately 18 to 24 inches wide, 4 feet deep, and 10 to 15 feet in length. The trenches would start on the creek bank and progress away from the bed, so that the trench would not cross the streambed. After the site is inspected and a determination regarding the presence or absence of cultural resources is made, all three (3) sites would be backfilled using the previously excavated material. The backfill would be compacted using the backhoe or excavator scoop or by driving over the backfill with equipment tires, and the site would be stabilized using appropriate erosion control methods such as crimped straw and loose-wave natural fiber jute netting. All work would be conducted when the creek channel is dry and devoid of surface flow.
