Banks Pumping Plant Upper V-ditch Sediment Removal (Expedited)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
DFD staff will remove sediment from the cement lined v-ditches on the upper embankment slopes along both the primary and secondary sides of the BAPP Intake Channel. Sediment will be removed from the v-ditches using a small excavator and material will be dropped to the lower v-ditch adjacent to the intake roadways. This sediment will be removed from the lower v-ditch using a wheel mounted skid steer with a loader bucket and/or front end loader. Excavation of sediment will be restricted to the concrete v-ditches and subsequent clean-up along the lower roads. The entire work area is within DFD right of way. There will be no dirt removal or staging outside the project footprint.
