Document Description
The project is limited to the removal of berry bushes and small shrubs within the creek channel and drainage tributaries to ensure proper conveyance of storm water through the Hidden Valley Lake residential subdivision. The creek has become overgrown with brush, causing localized flooding and excess sediment build up at existing culverts. Project activities are restricted to the channel and bank only. No heavy equipment will be used. Follow-up herbicide application on berry bushes along the bank may be implemented to control the excess vegetation. All activities will occur in dry conditions.
