Document Description
Beale Air Force Base is home to an active runway and flight lane, and the base Flight Safety Office requires that the base follow a Bird Aircraft Strike Hazard plan (BASH). The BASH plan is intended to minimize the threat of bird strikes, which pose a threat to human life and property. Reeds Creek runs across the north end of Beale AFB, and is located approximately 1.2 miles from the runway. Recently, a portion of Reeds Creek has been dammed by beavers. The beaver dam resulted in a large ponded area which remains inundated with water throughout the summer. The pond has attracted large numbers of waterfowl, resulting in a significant hazard to aircrafts. The Reeds Creek Restoration Project consists of the installation of two 10-inch diameter, 130 foot culverts. This will restore natural flowing stream conditions and will also enhance flight safety. The culverts will be monitored and possibly moved as needed to ensure the efficiency of the water reduction process.
