Document Description
The City of Arcata proposes to test various living shoreline construction methods and materials at four different sites within the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary in order to observe sediment accretion and establishment of salt marsh vegetation. Project sites include one site along I Street, one site across from Hauser Marsh, and two sites along the eastern end of the South Oxidation Pond of the Waste Water Treatment Plant. Each of the four sites includes the application of a combination of three different design methods: Pilot Cell A, B, or C. All three Pilot Cell approaches apply the same general dimensions, with a maximum width of 100 feet and a maximum depth from the shore of 30 feet. Pilot project site 1 is 0.30 acres, pilot project site 2 is 0.12 acres, pilot project site 3 is 0.14 acres, and pilot site 4 is 0.22 acres. The total project area will be 0.78 acres.
