Document Description
The City of Lompoc proposes a 1,100 ft Reinforced Vegetative Bank Protection System to be located at the base of the western bank of the Santa Ynez River, between Pine and North Ave. The RVBPS consists of 10 rows of steel cables (bents) perpendicular to the river's bank, with each bent connected by four to six strands of steel cables, and willow plantings between the bents. These structures will serve to protect the nearby bike path, street and homes. No grading or vegetation removal is proposed. Access is to be from River Park or Riverside Dr. The project will be implemented in the river bed only, not on the river banks. A flood certification has been made, verifying the base flood elevation will not rise as a result of the project during the occurrence of the base flood discharge. The project has an estimated life of 50 years.
