Chicken Ranch Slough Riparian Habitat Restoration Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project consists of excavation and grading to re-establish aquatic habitat along the banks of Chicken Ranch Slough. The channel is in need of restoration due to bank degradation, scouring during storm events and associated alluvial deposition. Three sections of the creek are proposed for restoration. The most critical needs Phase 2 (Mid-way along the slough near the playground) and Phase 3 (The bend at the southwest corner of the park). In conjunction with each phase of the restoration process, channel realignment, removal of in-stream sedimentation and installation of clean cobble and river rock is proposed. The streambed will be restored with rock and cobble riffle, runs, and pools. Where there is sufficient area, bank slopes will be laid back to at least a 10:1 slope. All disturbed areas and existing bare areas will be revegetated with suitable species and erosion control practices.
