NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Nine geotechnical borings and one pothole excavation will be conducted to acquire confirmation data related to the location of the existing slurry cutoff wall and to confirm the as-built drawings of the flood gates. The depth of the borings will range from five feet to 80 feet in depth. Each boring is expected to take one day for approximately 10 days although they may not be continuous. Generally, hollow stem augers will be used and rotary wash drilling will be used in some cases but not in the levee section. All borings will be grouted to the surface at completion.
