Document Description
The purpose of the Project is to remove and replace an aging wood piling pier to provide enhanced structural stability and safety to the pier on the subject property in Lake Tahoe. Existing wood pier pilings will be removed or cut flush with the lakebed of Lake Tahoe and will be replaced using driven steel pilings. The Project will not result in any change to the location or physical extent of the existing pier. Equipment required for pier removal and pile driving activities will be operated from an amphibious barge. Temporary water quality impacts in the project area may result from disturbance of lakebed sediment during amphibious barge movement and staging, pile driving, and pile removal. The Project will not result in any permanent impact to the lakebed of Lake Tahoe.
