The applicant is seeking after-the-fact authorization for relocation of Hallock Creek approximately 150 feet to the west of the original alignment. Hallock Creek broke out of its banks on July 15, 2021, due to extreme rainfall and caused flooding in the area. The bank failed on the east side and flowed directly into the gravel pit. As an emergency measure a new channel was dug to the west of the old channel following approximately the same flow path. The replaced channel was approximately 1,030 feet long, the newly created channel is approximately 1,090 feet long has 5:1 slope and is 5-6 feet wide at base. The primary purpose of the emergency project was to stop continual flow of water into the gravel pit.
