Description: Technical report
INTRODUCTION: Preparation of this report was directed by the Office of the Chief of Engineers in DAEN-CWB-E second endorsement dated 28 October 1980 to SAMPD-F letter of 15 February 1980. Severe erosion is evident in the upper reaches of Twenty Mile Creek. Congress has responded to the urgent requests for assistance from landowners by providing the authority to rectify the erosion problems and has provided funds for a “pilot” phase of streambank stabilization. It is anticipated that additional funding will be provided when a plan for more complete rectification is finalized. The funding provided by Congress was to construct “...two grade control structures with adjacent stabilization work, including planting willows. . .“ (H.R. 96-934). This report presents the plan of action, design drawings, and costs associated with the pilot phase of the problem rectification. The report is to secure approval for the preparation of plans and specifications.
