Sidmore Driveway Access Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The purpose of the project is to provide driveway access to an existing home on the far side of the unnamed tributary. The project would involve building a 20-foot wide driveway over the tributary. A culvert will be installed in the channel and backfilled with a 2:1 slope to the culvert, which will be armored with rip rap. The tributary is culverted or has hardened banks both upstream and downstream of the project area. A limited area of open channel will remain after installation of the driveway. Past road related flood control work done upstream by other parties has diverted a major portion of this drainage to a storm drain culvert.
