Document Description
The existing apparatus bay at the Hermit Springs Forest Fire Station is not large enough to accomodate bay with an 8-foot by 20-foot addition using standard wood siding and framing material. An additional 20-foot by 20-foot structure will also be constructed behind the existing apparatus bay to accomodate the storage building pad, but no vegetation removal will be needed. Additionally, a light pole will be installed in the existing parking area. There is an existing underground electrical line that will be utilized. The project will take approx. 6 weeks to complete, with intermittent construction equipment such s a backhoe, compactor, concrete trucks, and related delivery trucks. The project is not adjacent to any watercourses. The topography is flat.
