American River Watershed Common Features (ARCF) 2016 Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed work would include approximately 16 to 20 geotechnical borings located north of the existing Sacramento Weir and Bypass. The borings would be performed during late August, 2019 through October, 2019. These geotechnical borings will be used to inform engineering design. Borings would be approximately 4-6 inches in diameter and be drilled to a depth of approximately 50 to 100 feet. Woody vegetation, such as trees and shrubs, would not be impacted as part of the proposed work. The actual number, depth, and locations of borings would be determined in the field based on factors including existing conditions, physical access, safety and environmental concerns, and nature of underlying material.
