Upper Dock Fish Cleaning Station Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The fish cleaning station at Picacho SRA upper dock needs to be replaced as it has been damaged by burros and is unsafe. The new cleaning table will be constructed out of redwood lumber or other hard wood. The dimension of the cleaning station is 8’ x 3.' The table requires four 6” x 6” posts, with each post hole excavated to a maximum of 12” diameter x 3’ deep. Hand tools or an auger will be used to dig the holes, and concrete will be used to secure the post. A gas powered mixer may be used to mix and pour concrete on-site. Once installed, the existing water line may need to be adjusted on the sink – this adjustment will be aboveground only and will be determined based on final sink dimensions. Hand tools may be used to improve an accessible path of travel from the parking area to the fish cleaning station. The path may not exceed 5% slope. Measures to be implemented to avoid impact may be obtained by submitting a request to the Environmental Coordinator listed below.
