Document Description
The project is limited to the installation of one at-grade stream crossing through an ephemeral drainage on the west side of the Wide Awake mine, the replacement of a culvert, the removal of approximately 58 cubic yards of mine related material from the bank of an unnamed tributary to Sulphur Creek. Work will be restricted to the dry season (April 1 through October 15), when no water is expected to be in the ephemeral drainages. After work is complete, any areas temporarily disturbed by project activities will be restored and re-contoured to pre-existing conditions. The purpose of the dam will be to trap sediment, if necessary, after the mine material has been removed from the stream channel. The sediment dam will remain in place for up to a maximum of five years.
