Morrison Creek Levee Emergency Repair
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The purpose of this project is to repair the breached berm and stop water flow through the levee separating Morrison Creek from Lower Beach Lake or Stone Lakes. This is critical to allow continued function of Morrison Creek, Sump 90 and Regional San facilities during the remainder of winter and any periods of high flow or inundation. An access road must be constructed to bring an excavator onto the berm to conduct the repair. The existing bridge 500 feet upstream of the failure is narrow and does not have the weight capacity to allow an excavator like a CAT 336 to safely cross the bridge.
