City of Tacoma Determination of Environmental Nonsignificance
Lead Agency: City of Tacoma
Applicant: Environmental Services Department, Science and Engineering Division
Proposal: Dry Gulch Sedimentation Pond Maintenance Project: This project includes excavation of sediment accumulated above the design grade of the sedimentation pond between existing Ecology block walls and clearing up to the existing outfall structure. Sediment removal from the sedimentation pond will help prevent sediment and stormwater runoff contaminants from traveling downstream and discharging to the beach and Puget Sound. This is standard maintenance for this constructed stormwater sedimentation pond.
Location: The project is located within Dry Gulch at 5620 Upland Terrace NE, Tacoma, WA 98422; Parcel # 0321163198.
