PP1 Bank Stabilization Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) proposes to install riprap reinforcement along a portion of Clearwater Creek near LADWP's PP1 facility. Approximately 615 cubic yards of riprap would be placed at a 2:1 (H:V) slope along approximately 205' of the creek bank. The stream bank is roughly 10' in height and riprap would be placed up to 18' into the stream. This bank along this portion of Clearwater Creek has been compromised by erosions caused partially by native tree roots and threatens to weaken the integrity of the abutting access road which is used as the primary road to PP1. This causes concern for any super-heavy equipment needed to access PP1 for plant maintenance.
