Document Description
This application is for a Grading Abatement to restore the site to pre-graded conditions. Approximately 2.19 acres of the site was converted into a flat surface for parking that required approx. 9,842 cubic yards of grading with up to 25 ft. in height of fill material. A new pond was excavated that resulted in 7,777 cubic yards of cut volume and 7 feet cut height, which altered a natural drainage swale that leads to Alamias Creek. The grading violation also include an addition 4,215 cubic yards of fill which will be removed and hauled away from site as surplus of backfill created from alteration of pipeline utilities. The proposed project will entail 10,558 cubic yards of cut and 6,343 cubic yards of fill to restore the site to prior existing conditions by regrading the property to original contours.
