Residence 33 Drainage
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Grade and contour <1,000 square feet of land 6" or less in depth to ensure proper drainage of storm water run-off away from Historic Residence #33 in Columbia State Historic Park to prevent water damage to the house. Work will excavate a trench a maximum of 12" deep, 12" wide and 120' long to install French drains around the North and West Sides of the residence and install a discharge pipe to a 36" x 36" dry well at the North East corner of the lot. Sand and native soil will be used to backfill the trench. Additional work will re-vegetate the excavated and trenched areas with native grass seed and straw and install a 3.5" deep concrete slab floor in the existing 20' x 26' dirt floor garage (minimal hand raking will occur to level the ground). Excavation and trenching will be monitored by an Associate State Archaeologist.
Project consists of repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing public facilities or topographical features involving no expansion of use beyond that existing and minor alteration in the condition of land which do not involve removal of healthy mature, scenic trees.
