The purpose of the project is to stabilize a 68 foot long section of steep stream bank that is currently eroding and contributing sediment into an unnamed creek in Cotati, CA. This will be accomplished by removing the current ineffective rock revetment, laying back the bank with a small excavator, and installing a willow wall.
The project is under 5 acres and will stabilize an eroding stream bank and reduce sediment input into an unnamed creek using only bioengineering techniques. No special status species are known to occur in or adjacent to the project area. This project, therefore, falls under the small habitat restoration projects categorical exemption 15333.
