Document Description
The project will consist of removing debris from the entire site and digging trenches for new utilities in various locations within the footprint of the project. Approximately one third of the project site is covered in deteriorated asphalt with an existing building structure and concrete apron. Activities associated with the project will be ground disturbing trenching to depths between 18" to 36" and no greater than 36" wide. A utility trench, approximately 410 meters long, will border the southern half of the project area. A second utility trench for electricity will extend approximately 76 meters on the northwest side of the project from Sutter Ave to the main project line along the access driveway. A third trench for water and fiber optic cable will extend approximately 115 meters on the northeast side of the project across Sutter Ave to the main project line. A fourth trench will extend from the existing building structure approximately 130 meters to a portable unit located in the southeast comer of the project. Project trenching will result in approximately 800 cubic yards of soil disturbance. Less than one acre of soil will be disturbed and areas will be backfilled to original grade, which will prevent any change in drainage pattern. See NOE for full details.
