Adobe Road Bank Stabilization – Taylor Property Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project is to stabilize the bank of the Sacramento River on the property to prevent further erosion and further loss of the bank. Installation of a floating dock is also proposed on the property. The project includes the placement of 16-inch minimum (200-pound) rock slope protection (RSP) along the bank of the Sacramento River to provide protection against future erosion and to prevent additional sloughing and erosion of the bank. Prior to the placement of RSP, portions of the bank will be excavated to form a slope of 1.5:1. Soil will be excavated, RSP fabric will be placed, and RSP will be installed approximately 2.5 feet thick. Following the placement of RSP, the area disturbed by construction activities will be planted with native vegetation similar to that currently existing on the bank of the river at the site (grasses, California wild grape, and willow). Native willow pole cuttings will be planted within the RSP to provide additional stabilization and refuge/habitat for aquatic species and other native species will be planted on any disturbed areas of the bank above the RSP. The total volume of RSP placed will be approximately 103 cubic yards; 61 cubic yards of the total volume will be placed below the ordinary high-water mark (OWHM). The staging, stockpiling, and equipment operation areas are estimated to be approximately 0.2 acres. The dock will consist of an 8-foot by 20-foot patio boat. The boat will be attached to the shore by two 12-inch diameter pipes installed at the top of the bank, above the OHWM. The pipes will be 15 feet long and will be cemented in two 24-inch diameter holes.
