Bethel Island - Horseshoe Bend In-Water Borings
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The permittee plans to mud-rotary drill ten borings within Little Franks Tract. Borings will be advanced from a barge using vibracore techniques. Continuous sampling is planned from the vibracore. SAA #1600-2010-0175-R3.
Borings are for strictly information gathering purposes to characterize the sub-surface material in Piper Slough and Little Franks Tract to further develop proposed alternatives to alleviate seepage, scouring, and erosion on Bethel Island at the Horseshoe Bend area.
