American River Pump Station Erosion Repair
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
High river flows during winter storms of 2016-2017 eroded the embankment of the access road to the intake screens of the American River Pump Station. Approx 400 ft of the embankment eroded and washed away from the site, which is located adjacent to the north fork of the American River near 492 Maidu Drive in Auburn. It is proposed that the embankment be repaired during the dry season and is expected to take approx six weeks. The repair will consist of excavating the eroded area to sub-grade, placing gunite, rock, and boulders on the sub-grade and shaping he finished slope to a condition similar to the slope that existed prior to the erosion. The construction equipment will access the site via existing roadways.
