NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project is limited to replacement of an undersized culvert at an agricultural road crossing and repairing an eroding stream bank. The project would replace the existing 48-inch diameter culvert with an 84-inch diameter, 29- foot long corrugated metal pipe culvert and repair an eroding stream bank on the downstream eastern bank. The bottom 12-inches of the culvert would be filled with 6-inch diameter rock to emulate the natural stream bottom. Existing riprap on the upstream side of the culvert would be removed, and the eroded banks stabilized with less than 30-inch diameter rock riprap extending approximately 10 feet upstream and 20 feet downstream from the culvert. Live willow (Salix sp.) stakes will be planted between the riprap rocks.
