Rehabilitate Trippet Ranch Parking Lot
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Trippet Ranch area of Topanga State Park has dealt with erosion that channels along fire roads above the area, flows through the parking area and is resulting in gullies below the parking lot that are undermining oak trees and could soon undermine a picnic area as well as the parking lot. In addition, sediment transferred into the nearby drainage is likely violating RWQCB requirements for the discharge of pollution into this drainage, which leads to Topanga Canyon Creek.
The parking lot would be rehabilitated including, but not limited to, improving ingress and egress, improving accessibility within and surrounding the parking lot, surface rehabilitation, signage, pathways, landscaping and other minor appurtenances. Stormwater management features would be installed within the parking lot as well as both up and downstream of it. Geotechnical testing shall also take place to determine the specifications for project components.
Resource protection measures shall be incorporated into this project. These measures may be obtained by submitting a request to the project Environmental Coordinator listed below.
