Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The Project includes installing a 200-foot by 65-foot stilling basin to collect flows from two (2) unnamed tributaries, and to then redirect those flows through a 72-inch diameter corrugated metal pipe for approximately 740 feet to its confluence with Paso Robles Creek. Rock slope protection, lined with native vegetation, will be installed at the outlet. The structure will effectively bypass the existing ephemeral gully that has been eroding due to increased runoff from adjacent subdivisions. The bypassed gully will be filled with native material, and the tributary immediately upstream and to the west of the stilling basin will be restored with riparian vegetation over 0.31 acres.
