NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
SJFD staff will repair erosions that were recently created by water that escaped the surge tank due to damaged cables. These erosions are located within the surge tank fenced in area and along 2 dirt access roads that connect Edmonston Pumping plant to the surge tank. To fix these erosions, dump trucks will be used to haul in native soil. A loader would be used to move debris and dirt. A motor grader will be used to re-grade the 2 dirt access roads and the fenced in area around the surge tank. A skid steer will be used to spread dirt, reshape the slopes within the fenced in area to its original condition, and to clean up smaller spaces where larger equipment can not reach. A crane and boom truck will be used to move the skid steer. A water vacuum truck will be used to clean out drains. This work is necessary to keep the integrity of the surge tank and to provide access to the surge tank.
