The repair will consist of replacing rock and soil which has slipped away from above the mean summer water level. Construction would occur sometime between August 16 and October 30, 2011 or 2012 if State budget constraints cause delay, and shoud take no more than 10 working days to complete.
The project involves, repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing public structures or facilities involving no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination.
