DFD staff will remove soil from the v-ditches adjacent to the lower intake roadways along both the primary and secondary side of the BAPP intake channel. DFD staff will first remove loose soil from the hillside adjacent to the v-ditch along both the primary and secondary sides of the BAPP intake channel using an excavator or backhoe. Sediment in the v-ditch will be removed using a wheel mounted skid steer with a loader bucket and/or front-end loader. All removed soil will be placed in a dump truck and transported to the upper bone yard, where it will be stockpiled. There will be no soil removal or staging outside of the project footprint. The entire work area is within DWR right-of-way.
