NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Project is limited to the stabilization and restoration of a section of the north-facing riverbank of the Napa River (Stream) within the property limits of Calistoga Elementary School. This Project’s objective is to stabilize the river bank and support water quality and riparian habitat along 340 linear feet of the Stream and is preceded by several recent bank failures upstream of the Project site. The Project involves removing a chain-link fence, concrete debris, and rock armoring from the existing site, regrading approximately 0.17 acres (7,200 square feet) to reduce bank steepness, in-kind replacement of a storm drain outfall with rock armoring features, in-kind replacement of the chain-link fence with poured concrete bases, and replanting of the site with native plants. Clearing of the bank prior to regrading will include the removal of 12 native and non-native trees. The Project will result in 160 square feet of permanent impacts to the stream bank and 0.225 acres (9,816 square feet) of temporary impacts to the riparian area.
