NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
SLFD will repair erosions, as needed, on both sides of Aqueduct Reach 4. The eroded material onsite will first be used to backfill the erosions; if additional material is needed, it will be transported from an existing SLFD stockpile. After being backfilled, the erosions will be compacted either by rolling with a sheep's foot roller or by using a tamper. The embankment will be recontoured to design specifications. This work will be conducted annually. State Water Project will benefit.
