TD1716691 and TD1750051 Silver Lake Meadow Deteriorated Pole Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project involves removing and replacing one existing single deteriorated wood distribution pole (Pole 24961S) and two existing deteriorated wood H-frame transmission poles (Structure1960503E/1960504E). The project will be accessed by truck, and the proposed access route has been planned in a manner that minimizes impacts to vegetation and increase the potential for natural recovery, including BMPs and using matting (12 by 12 feet per pad) along the overland travel route to distribute the weight of the equipment and discourage off-road use outside designated work areas. Temporary impacts to WOUS will result from construction access and equipment staging. Permanent impacts will result from the backfilling of the caisson with concrete mix.
