Big Sur Riverbank Washout Repair (05-1H770)
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The big Sur Riverbank has been washed out at this location due to recent heavy rains. As a result, the shoulder and roadway of State Route 1 and adjacent utilities are in great jeopardy. Placement of approximately 1,200 tons of rock slope protection is anticipated to reduce high-velocity flow, and eliminate further bank erosion.
This project is exempt pursuant to Section 15269(b) of the CEQA Guidelines. The project consists of emergency repairs to publicly owned service facilities which are necessary to maintain service essential to public health, safety, and welfare.
