Bucks Lake Bank Stabilization
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The project is limited to stabilizing appoximately 720 feet of shoreline along Bucks Lake. Due to hydroelectric generation and fluctuating lake levels, erosion of the shoreline is undermining a segment of Pioneer Way which runs parallel to the shoreline and provides access to U.S. Forest Service lands and privately leased cabins. The project entails minor re-contouring of the shoreline to lay back and slope the bank, placement of rip-rap rock along the bank and removal of 14 trees along the shoreline that have under-cut roots or will interfere with rip-rap installation.
