Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Retaining Wall: The new retaining wall will be constructed of metal Z-style sheet piles and about the existing timber wall. Work will be conducted when lake levels are low. Sheet piles will be lifted into place with a crane and hammered in using pile driving equipment. One of two options will be used for the installation of the sheet piles: Method 1 would use a variable moment vibratory hammer system and Method 2 would use press technology which is a noise reduced and vibration less driving system. No vegetation will be removed for this project. Drying bed: installation of an additional concrete basin-style drying bed adjacent to and matching the existing. Emergency Intertie: installation of an intertie pump station including but not limited to associated piping, controls, pumps, and pump house benefiting the customers for Buckingham Park Water District and Harborview Mutual Water company in the event of an emergency condition.
