Midcoast Culvert Replacement Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Project is limited to replacement of five deteriorated culverts and repair of an eroded creek bank. The existing corrugated metal pipes will be removed and replaced with smooth interior plastic pipes. The trench dimensions vary with each culvert and each trench will be backfilled, compacted and resurfaced. New concrete headwalls will be constructed at the inlets. If a project site has water in the creek, a sandbag cofferdam will be constructed upstream, and a clean water bypass will be installed to divert flow around it. The bank repair will include construction of a small rock revetment. Issuance of a Streambed Alteration Agreement No. 1600-2011-0055-R3 is pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
