Grimmer Property Drainage Improvements
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project is limited to the annual removal of up to 7,000-cubic-yards of accumulated sediment, gravel, and invasive upland herbaceous vegetation from the beds of South Branch Sand and Salt Creeks. The sediment and gravel buildup reduces the potential flow volume of the systems and increases the rates of erosion and potential for flooding. The annual removal maintenance work should reduce the flood risk to property and reduce the frequency and intensity of implementing erosion control measures.
