Document Description
The Project site is a landfill that has not operated since approximately 1958. In November 2015, a small portion of the closed Pedley Landfill suffered erosion damage. The affected area is located in the northwest corner of the landfill, adjacent to the De Anza Channel. The proposed project includes excavation of exposed landfill material and slope armoring with a revetment system- articulated concrete blocks (ACB). The ACB will be covered with engineered fill, allowing for future re-vegetation of the site. Project construction will occur above the waterline and appropriate best management practices (BMPs_, in addition to an onsite biological monitor, will ensure that any Project related impacts, while not anticipated, remain negligible. The project will cure the recent erosion conditions, as well as provide critical protection to the De Anza Channel, Santa Ana River, and surrounding environment during future rain events.
