Document Description
Project is limited to realigning approx. 400 linear feet of stream channel in order to meet necessary setbacks for a septic system installation for a new single family modular home. The stream is an ephemeral tributary to Salmon Creek, and primarily exists within this reach as a vegetated channel, with very little rock substrate, so impacts are mostly limited to downstream sediment delivery. The project will be completed when there is no standing water in the channel and soil substrate is dry. The realignment must consider all range of flows so that new channel can adequately handle the capacity of the former channel and must be set at a grade where downcutting will not occur from changing the stream profile. The new alignment will cut off a meander bend, so the new bank must have protective rock rip-rap installed to prevent channel recapture at the point where the new channel moves away from the old channel. Disturbed areas will be seeded with native grass seed.
