Update on Debris Removal from the February 14 Mudflow

Post Date:09/06/2019 3:50 PM

The removal of debris from the mudflow that struck the Hurricane Gulch neighborhood on February 14 is now expected to begin no sooner than the week of September 23.

Removal of the more than 5,000 tons of material will be performed by Resource Environmental, Inc. of Long Beach, California, which was awarded the project after a competitive bidding process. The professional engineering consultant firm of Harris & Associates will be assisting the City with project management, inspections, and federal paperwork.

On September 5, City staff and the engineering team from Harris & Associates held a pre-construction meeting with the contractor and utility companies. The meeting identified a number of items that must be completed before debris removal can begin, including the submittal of safety plans, the receipt of a permit from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, and the temporary relocation of a utility line in the construction area.

If all goes well, the contractor anticipates breaking ground during the final week of September 2019. As work starts on the project, community members should anticipate noise from construction equipment and increased truck traffic on Main Street. The approved construction hours are Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Any questions about the mudflow debris removal process may be directed to Public Works Director Kevin McGowan at kmcgowan@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4176.
