Document Description
CDFW has executed a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement NO. 1600-2015-0279-R1, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Humboldt County Public Works Dept. as represented by Mr. Hank Seemann. Project entails five stream encroachments to conduct a geotechnical survey for a stability and hydraulic capacity assessment via borings along the levee on the north side of Eureka Slough. the geotechnical survey consists of five cross sections perpendicular to the slough with borings at four locations long each cross-section, one boring inland from slough within each parcel and three on levee (inland side, top, and slough side). Slough side drilling will be conducted from metal staging plates on non-vegetated mudflats using a small bore diameter (1.4 inches) with no drilling fluids used or soil cuttings generated, and no excessive noise or vibrations created.
