Salter Residence Bank Protection Project, WDID# 5A45CR00531, Redding, Shasta County
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Salter Residence Bank Protection Project will stabilize the existing earthen riverbank of the Sacramento River where it has over time been eroding. It will also protect the immediate property downstream. Most of the Salter property is well protected by existing long-term vegetation that became established in portions of the slope stable enough to allow such vegetation to survive in the long term and therefore, become more resistant to the erosion. The Project is designed to be minimally intrusive in selected areas to enable these plants to expand their protection, effectively minimizing the erosion. The relatively small concrete ecology blocks used to stabilize the bank will allow judicial placement in areas available with minimal excavation. Space between the blocks will provide soil exposure to plants or allow long-term species to expand their range. It is also anticipated as the vegetation expands, it will shield the blocks from view of those traveling the Sacramento River.
