Document Title
Goldhaber Pier Repair Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The purpose of the Project is to install four pilings to support an existing rock and crib pier. The Project proposes no modification of the dimensions of the existing pier. Piles will be driven from a floating barge into sandy lakebed substrate and granite bedrock within existing cribbing. Caissons will be installed around pier pilings if an increase in turbidity is observed during visual monitoring. At the lakebed location of the four pile driving sites, divers will reposition rocks within the cribbing to allow for piles to be driven. Temporary impacts to water quality may include lakebed sediment displacement and suspension as a result of pile driving and rock relocation activities. No additional permanent impact to Lake Tahoe will result from the installation of four 10 3/4-inch steel pilings, as the pilings will be located with the existing cribbing.
