NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
A homeless camp located along Smith Canal, just west of I-5, has caused erosion and degradation of slope stability from Levee Station 62+30 to 67+50. 18:minus riprap will be placed on the waterside slope and larger 1/5 to 1 ton boulders will be scattered near the crown of the levee to deter the homeless from building encampments in the area again. The project will require minor regrading of the slope to re-establish a consistent grade for placement of the rock slope protection, as well as a keyed area at the bottom of the slope to hold rock in place so as to stay above the mean high water level with placement. Trash within the project area will be removed by a local non-profit group called San Joaquin Delta Neighborhood Watch, along with assistance from the City of Stockton Public Works, and City of Stockton Police.
