The project proposes to undertake geotechnical services to identify the soil conditions in the Gold Flat Campground area of Lake Oroville State Recreation Area to determine if soil conditions will allow replacement and upgrade of sewer and electrical infrastructure for improved visitor experiences. Work will:
- Use a tracked mini-excavator to excavate up to 6 12' wide by 5' deep test pits;
- Use a truck-mounted drill rig equipped with 6" diameter augers to bore 4 3' deep holes; and
- Upon completion of exploratory survey work, restore are to pre-survey elevation and backfill with excavation spoils.
Project consists of the minor public alterations in the condition of land and vegetation which do not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees and the basic data collection and resource evaluation activities which do not result in a serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource included as "soils and structural engineering tests" in the Parks and Rec's list of exempt activities in accordance with CCR 15300.4.
