Work consists of six (6) cone penetration tests to determine the depth and thickness of Bay Mud and the location of the bed rock. Samples will be taken using rotary wash boring to extract soil samples to determine underlying soil conditions. Issue a Right of Entry Permit to Marin County Public Works to facilitate these tests. All work conducted in association with the Right of Entry will comply with all State and Federal environmental laws, including but not limited to the Endangered Species Act, CEQA, and Section 5024 of the Public Resources Code.
