Document Description
The Elder Creek Channel Improvement Project involves the replacement of the existing channel/road culverts with larger capacity channel/culverts; construction of a new concrete by-pass channel, small sedimentation basin, and regrading, enlarging, and revegetating the earthen channel below Abbey Way and maintaining it as a low flow channel; grading/culvert pipe improvements to East Highland Storm Drain; grouted rock placement at the downstream end where Elder Creek by-pass channel, earthen low flow channel, and Church Street channel converge; a one-time maintenance of Church Street Channel; and routine maintenance of the existing District-owned system within the project limits. Additionally, the southeastern stockpile area (shelf) would be regraded to gently slope west and be revegetated.
