Document Description
The amendments consists of a plan to temporarily divert the flows of Jackson Creek around the work site by installing a sandbag headwall upstream of the site. Flows will be diverted through two 180 foot long, 24 inch diameter HDPE pipes, which will outlet downstream of the site. The aspect of the project that may substantially impact the Jackson Creek is limited to located and securely capping three sewer pipes that had serviced the destroyed buildings. The ends of these pipelines will be located, using small portable cameras mounted on flexible hoses, which will be inserted into the existing pipelines. Because the pipelines may extend into the bank of the stream, small areas of streambank may need to be temporarily excavated in order to securely cap the pipelines. These small areas of temporary impacts are not expected to exceed a total of 300 square feed. Other aspects of the larger project will take place on existing foundations/buildings next to the creek and include repairing existing piers, repairing or replace the sewer service for the adjacent Amador Dispatch Acorn News building, and developing a parking lot on the foundations of the previously burned buildings.
