Shiloh Ranch Regional Park Riparian Restoration Project


SCH Number
Public Agency
California Regional Water Quality Control Board, North Coast Region 1 (RWQCB)
Document Title
Shiloh Ranch Regional Park Riparian Restoration Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project will address ongoing erosion within a stream channel and pond by filling the existing gullies, both up- and down-stream of the pond; creating a new spillway and, ultimately, realigning the downstream creek bed with its original footprint. The end result will be a shallow meadow channel with a gentler slope to slow flow and spread water over a larger area downstream of the pond, better mimicking a stable headwater channel. The new rock-lined spillway would be built to mimic a step-pool channel, with many small drops and spaces for water to pool. All rock grade control structures and channels would be planted with native plants to minimize visual impact, improve stability, and provide a connected wildlife corridor. Upstream, the sediment basin would be filled in to create a small wetland and a biotechnical log grade control would smooth and grade the upper gully.
