In order to remedy the current condition, the landowner will remove the earthen dam and materials from Chandans Creek, slope back and harden the remaining earthen berms, and revegetate the area with native species by planting willow and alder stakes, and/or seeding unvegetated areas, as required by a qualified biologist. The dam removal has been designed by an engineer and will be hardened (rock slope protections) to withstand at least a 100-year stormflow event.
