Document Description
The project represents the replacement of an existing vault toilet (outhouse) with a restroom facility for forest visitors at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest. The restroom will be in the same general location of the existing facility, within the main parking area (dirt and gravel surface) located at the entrance to the state forest. The BMDSF main parking area is located at the end of Forestry Road, 1/4 mile off CA hwy 175 and is adjacent to the Forest Office and the Boggs Mountain Helitack Station. The replacement restroom lies approximately 150 feet from the existing vault toilet. The existing vault toilet will be removed and the excavated hole will be backfilled with material excavated during the installation of the new restroom. Installation of the restroom requires the following: level and compact the 12'x 14' restroom footprint area, excavate a 150', 1' x 2' septic line trench, lay the septic line and backfill, install toilet and sink hardware components, and construct and enclosure structure. Plumbing the facility will require excavating a 180', 1'x1' trench across parking lot area to water access, laying the pipe and backfilling the trench. Only minor amounts of vegetation (grasses and forbes) will be disturbed during the construction.
