Full Public Notice    Project Plans

The applicant proposes to re-slope and re-grade the Sherwood Forest Ditch to a 0.055% grade and re-grade and re-slope and Tamarind Woods Ditch to a 0.20% grade.  Additionally, a low-water crossing will be constructed by pouring a concrete slab reinforced with rebar at the confluence of the two ditches.  The low-water crossing will be approximately 12 feet wide and shaped as a trapezoid which will be 27 feet long along one side and 52 feet long on the other side.  The low-water crossing will allow passage of maintenance vehicles.  Approximately 4.5 cubic yards of concrete and 750 cubic yards of clay will be placed within 13,470 square feet of drainage way bottom.  The Tamarind Woods Ditch is tidally influenced and jurisdictional for 157 feet, then rises sharply in grade to a non-jurisdictional, upland-cut drainage swale.  The Sherwood Forest Ditch is approximately 1,726 feet long and appears to have upstream drainage.  The Sherwood Forest Ditch is tidally-influenced for 700 feet, and has flowing water and an ordinary high water mark all the way to FM 2004.  The jurisdiction will be made by a preliminary jurisdictional determination.  The applicant’s plans are enclosed in 3 sheets.
