Trash to be removed generally includes garbage, tarps, tires, and shopping carts. A combination of hand crews and equipment such as bobcats will be used to clear debris from the riparian areas of Steelhead Creek. Once the debris is removed, a backhoe will be used to load debris into haul trucks where it will be disposed of an appropriate waste collection facility. Equipment will access the site from existing maintenance roads located within the Steelhead Creek floodplain. Work will only occur in areas that are currently dry. The project will not result in any impacts to Steelhead Creek and existing vegetation.
