Mudflow Debris Removal Underway

Post Date:10/04/2019 4:15 PM

On September 30, City contractor Resource Environmental began collecting, loading, and hauling away debris from the site of the mudflow that struck the Hurricane Gulch neighborhood in February 2019. Work hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

As the project progresses, work hours could be extended to 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. from Monday through Saturday. The City will provide advance notification if there are changes to the schedule. Once Crescent Avenue has been cleared, Resource Environmental will work to clear the terrain above and below the street.

The staging area for equipment is located at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and Main Street. "No Parking" signs are posted at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and Main Street and extend approximately 30 feet down Main Street on either side of Crescent Avenue. 

During removal, trucks hauling debris will travel to Highway 101 via 2nd Street and Alexander Avenue. Traffic traveling near the project area will be notified of the construction zone by posted signage and flagging.

The City continues to coordinate with Cal OES, FEMA, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the Marin Municipal Water District, and other regulatory agencies to comply with local, state, and federal safety standards. During operational hours, inspectors are on-site to identify any potential contaminants that could be uncovered during removal, supervise the handling of debris, and implement abatement measures, if necessary. 

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.
