Document Title
Jake’s Culvert Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Enrollee is proposing to repair an existing stream-road crossing located within the 2021 Salt Creek Fire burn scar. Two non-functioning culverts (18- and 24-inch culverts) will be removed. The two culverts will be replaced with a rock armored vented ford. The crossing is designed to overtop during flood events, and an 18-inch diameter by 20 feet long culvert will be installed to pass base flows. The project also consists of installing bioengineered bank stabilization upstream of the inlet to correct culvert functionality, reduce erosion and sedimentation, and improve aquatic habitat. The inlet will be armored with 6-inch riprap while the outlet will be armored with 12- to 18-inch rip-rap. To improve bank stabilization, root wads (large woody debris) will be buried in the bank and incorporated into the rock slope protection at the culvert inlet. To reduce downstream turbidity, a series of rock check dams will also be installed immediately upstream of the culvert inlet.
